Libri Lounge: The March of the Foxgloves
The heroine of Karyn Hay’s second book, The March of the Foxgloves, is as rebellious as the media personality herself.
Karyn, well-known as the presenter of iconic 1980s TV show, Radio With Pictures, has always spoken her mind.
As well as spending more than a decade as the evening talkback host on RadioLIVE, this veteran broadcaster is an award-winning novelist.
The March of the Foxgloves centres on the risqué nude photos of Frances Woodward, a feisty “new woman”, who flees London, leaving behind a scandal, and the cruel and puritanical Benedict Hunt.
In her adopted country, Frances falls in with other artists and non-conformists to forge her own path.
This novel explores Victorian erotica and is set in colonial Auckland and Tauranga in 1893, the year New Zealand women got the vote.
