      That was one of my motivations for writing the novel, Pagadan. I wanted to bring this important story to a new generation of readers, and especially to young women. It’s so easy to forget how recently many equalities were won – and there is still some way to go before we achieve true parity of opportunity in this country, let alone so many others around the world. Thank you for reading and contributing.

    I found your review – perhaps not a review, more an explanation of how and why the book came to be written – exceptionally interesting. I can understand what you wrote about needing distance to the subject of the book. By making your novel a work of fiction based on fact, you have achieved this emotional distance, but (and I feel that this is very important), you give the feeling that you definitely understand, and you can relate to, what you are actually writing about.
