Summary
"London, 1913. Conversation among the privileged classes centres on the problems of Ulster, women's rights and the troublesome Balkans. Alice Fry, the independent-minded daughter of a radical publisher, is keen to test the boundaries of what's possible in work and love. At an avant-garde party in Chelsea she meets Edward Cobb, the eligible young son of a baronet, who has recently quit the army to pursue his political ambitions. Edward's family could accept his liaison with a girl they consider 'fast', but when he proposes, they are appalled." "When Alice's father becomes involved in a sexual scandal, it becomes clear that Edward must choose between Alice and his political career. He breaks off the engagement, unaware that his lover is expecting his child. At the Derby that year, Alice meets a charming if somewhat predatory Russian, Baron von Rettenberg. The Baron has travelled to England to acquire the legendary racehorse Saladin - and an English governess. He invites Alice to return to Russia with him to take charge of his children. Desperate, Alice concludes that exile is preferable to shame..." "Alice in Exile tells the story of a clever, free-thinking woman, living in a world ruled by men, during a period that saw two of the greatest cataclysms of the twentieth century - the Great War and the Russian Revolution."--BOOK JACKET
