“In 1909, Nell Golightly is a young maid in the employ of Rupert Brooke's mother. Alternating between the voices of Nell and Rupert, Jill Dawson (a poet herself) brings Rupert Brooke to life in this striking and affecting novel of the poet as a young man. This moving story sparked my interest Brooke's poetry as well as my interest in his short life and tragic death.”
