It was a privilege to hear Barbara Ewing read from her work The Petticoat Men. Being an actor she read brilliantly! It was wonderful to hear the voices of the novel.

The Petticoat Men - based on the astonishing true story of two real Victorian legends, men who dressed as women. Ewing has researched extensively to tell her story & unearthed a fascinating political connection! The Times said it is 'Terrific'.
