A Petrol Scented Spring

A novel by

'When Donella Atkins meets ambitious doctor Hugh Ferguson Watson it is love at first sight, but the marriage is not happy. Donella thinks she knows why. Before she met him, Hugh force-fed several hunger-striking suffragettes. The redoubtable Arabella Scott he kept in isolation for five weeks, meeting her every day, talking together, touching... What really happened between Hugh and his prisoner patient? Did he fall for her idealism, or her looks? Was the battle of wills intoxicating and did she return his love? Cupid"s itch takes many forms. The one thing Donella knows for certain is it cannot be ignored. Based on real people and events, Cupid"s Itch is a riveting portrait of the women who dared to claim equality with men, and a fascinating exploration of passion, repression, jealousy and love.'
