Author Mary Talbot Cross recreates the life of poet Violet Nicolson, a courageous and outspoken woman, who found fame in 1901 writing under the pseudonym 'Laurence Hope'. Nicolson's three volumes of poetry, in which she evoked echoes of India's fascinating past, and her passionate accounts of forbidden liaisons and sensuous jasmine-laden nights sent shock waves through the polite Edwardian society of the day.
