The Great Lover

Jill Dawson / Patience Tomlinson William Rycroft
Nell Golightly is living out her widowhood in Cambridgeshire when she receives a strange request. A Tahitian woman claiming to be the daughter of the poet Rupert Brooke writes to ask what he was like. How did he sound what did he smell like how did it feel to wrap your arms around him? So Nell turns her mind to 1909 when as a seventeen-year-old housemaid she first encountered the young poet. He was already causing a stir - not only with his poems and famed good looks but also by his taboo-breaking behaviour and radical politics. Intrigued soon Nell realised that despite her good sense she was falling for him. But could he love a housemaid? Was he capable of love at all?
