Thanks for the encouragement from bloggers to continue my work on Constance Gore-Booth. So far I have no luck in getting the novel published but I am taking time from my teaching to rewrite the entire manuscript. I will be using a fictional character, Alice, loosely based on my grandaunt, and Constance will interact with her. This may make the book more lively, something that editors keep saying has to happen to improve its chances of being published.
As I love the story of Constance I am willing to devote myself to a rewrite, so wish me good luck - Helen Clarke Molanphy
