A Suppressed Cry

Glendinning, Victoria

Award-winning biographer, Victoria Glendinning writes about her great-aunt Winnie Seebohm, born into a Quaker family in Victorian England, who must fight for an education.
Despite a stifling family, Winnie made it to Cambridge where she was a pioneering bluestocking until illness ended her life aged only 22.

Victoria Glendinning's first book, inscribed by her to Frank Collieson, Cambridge bookseller, and with autographed letters, signed from her to Collieson (1979, 1980) and a separate letter to the bookseller from Jane Ransom thanking him for finding a copy of this book and her thoughts on it.
