Product Description

Who was Claudia Faraday?

Hidden in an attic for nearly 100 years this recently discovered ‘secret’ diary reveals the mildly scandalous adventures of a respectable 1920s Englishwoman and mother of three, as she discovers for the first time that sex, even at her (slightly) advanced age, can be fun.

Names have been changed to protect reputations.

Claudia Faraday may well get a name for herself. She's no Phryne Fisher or Lady Chatterley - she's far too subtle and mature - yet this middle-aged 1920s empty nester finds herself in the midst of a sexual awakening that seems decades ahead of its time. Along the way she encounters icons of the inter-war years; lusty suitors who may (or may not) come up with the goods for a lady of a certain age in need of a little stimulation, for both body and soul; and ruminates on the major issues for women of her generation, and the next, not by talking about men, but by opening her eyes to the lives of several fascinating contemporary women. What I loved most about this intriguing book is how it took me back to a time when people genuinely weren't able to recognise sexual diversity, to the point when it went completely unchallenged for its sheer shock value; and in those days, women enjoying sex certainly counted as sexual diversity. A witty, easy read replete with the requisite well-preserved older men the genre seems to demand, while also managing to land a mild feminist punch. I came to cheer for Claudia's triumphs as much as I grumbled at her self doubt, because she takes the journey to working out what attracts her, instead of simply living as a thing of beauty waiting to attract others.
