Beatrice Cadbury: The Book

Those of you who have received Kindle e-readers for Christmas may wish to know about a new book on Beatrice Cadbury that has just been published for the device. Author Fiona Joseph’s book will also be released in paperback later in January.

Beatrice Cadbury (1884-1976) reached an astonishing decision when she was in her thirties to give up all her inherited wealth and share it amongst the Cadbury workers. Although a relatively unknown member of the Cadbury dynasty, Fiona’s book offers a fascinating insight into Beatrice’s life:

“Join Beatrice on her astonishing journey from respectable Quaker girl to bold peace activist as she and her Dutch husband Kees Boeke relentlessly pursued their vision of a fairer and more equal society.”

Fiona Joseph is a former university lecturer and textbook writer who also writes short stories, language learner fiction and narrative non-fiction, with an emphasis on Life Writing. She is a member of Tindal Street Fiction Group, The Biographer’s Club and The Society of Authors. She lives with her husband and two children in Birmingham.
