In the fall of 2019, a new novel by Ruth Latta, Votes, Love and War will be published. It focusses on Winnipeg journalists and sisters Lillian Beynon Thomas and Francis Marion Beynon and their participation in the Manitoba women’s suffrage movement. Through a fictional narrator, Latta shows the warmth and vigor of the women’s suffrage movement and the influence of the WWI until Manitoba women obtained the vote in 1916.
Latta is the author of two other novels related to women’s history, Grace and the Secret Vault (Ottawa, Baico, 2017) and Grace in Love: A Novel about Grace Woodsworth (Ottawa, Baico, 2018). Information about these and my other books is available on her blogs: http://ruthlattabooks.blogspot.com and http://ruthlatta.blogspot.com
