Freya by Anthony Quinn

“Freya” has been compared favourably to the
Elena Ferrante novels.

Freya a strong-willed and outspoken young woman meets Nancy, a far more gentle soul on VE Day in London 1945 and together they celebrate.

Their strong friendship continues post Oxford with Freya moving into journalism and Nancy to publishing.  Their life encounters the social issues of the day, of the intolerance of homosexuals, the independence of women in the form of equal opportunity  and pay, and the degree to which male chauvinism exists.  Quinn does this with a light and effective touch.

Freya encounters these anomalies and shows herself to be an extraordinary women.

A very interesting and enjoyable read.
