A Lady and
Her Husband
AMBER REEVES
A 1914 novel by the girl (on the right in the photo) who was the model for HG Wells’s Ann Veronica; it is about a woman who starts to realise that her husband is exploiting the waitresses in his tea shops and tries to change things by visiting the shops, and renting a ‘room of one’s own’ to read up on financial matters:‘engaging’ and ‘fascinating’.
