by Margaret O. Oliphant

In the quiet town of Carlingford, Phoebe Beecham, a spirited and intelligent young woman, finds herself entangled in a web of familial intrigue. As the daughter of a successful lawyer, Phoebe is expected to follow the path laid out for her—a life of domesticity and dependence on her male relatives. But Phoebe harbors ambitions that stretch far beyond societal expectations. When Phoebe stumbles upon a hidden letter that uncovers a long-kept family secret, she becomes determined to forge her own destiny. Fuelled by a thirst for knowledge and adventure, she embarks on a journey to London, where she encounters a captivating world of literature, politics, and intellectual discourse. But in this new realm, Phoebe also discovers the dangerous allure of power and manipulation. As Phoebe navigates through the intricacies of London society, she must confront the choices she makes and the consequences they entail. Will she succumb to the pressures of conformity or find the strength to challenge the constraints imposed on women in Victorian society? "Phoebe, Junior" is a captivating novel that delves into the complexities of class, gender, and ambition in nineteenth-century England. Margaret O. Oliphant's rich storytelling and keen observations of human nature bring to life a young woman's struggle for self-discovery and independence. Join Phoebe on her remarkable journey as she fights against the odds and transforms into a force to be reckoned with.
