In the spring of 1916, we meet orphaned sister and brother Jay and Kew Martin in London. Jay (real name Jane Elizabeth) has run away from her strange, claustrophobic, interfering, well-heeled family to the simplicities of the Brown Borough (otherwise Hackney), to live amongst its working-class people, to a job as a bus conductor, and to discover her own wild self. Kew is on recuperative leave from the War, and manages to find Jay in her humble new abode. She begs him to preserve her newfound freedom and not reveal her whereabouts to their family. But nothing can stop their former guardians, the eccentric writer Anonyma Martin and her husband, their dry cousin Gustus, from setting out to try to find her, using clues from Jay’s letters. The problem is, Jay’s letters have been fabricated from her extraordinary dream-filled imagination; she’s set them on a wild goose-chase!

Author Bio: Stella Benson

Author Bio: Stella Benson

Stella Benson (1892–1933) was an English feminist, novelist, poet, and travel writer. Stella spent the winter of 1913–14 in the West Indies, which provided material for her first novel, I Pose. Living in London, she became involved in women’s suffrage, as had her older female relatives. During World War I, she supported the troops by gardening and by helping poor women in London’s East End at the Charity Organisation Society. These efforts inspired Benson to write the novels, This Is the End and Living Alone. She also published her first volume of poetry, Twenty, in 1918.
