St Radegund's College, Cambridge, which admits only women students, breaks with one hundred and sixty years of tradition by appointing a man, former BBC executive James Rycarte, as its new Head of House. As Rycarte fights to win over the Fellowship in the face of opposition from a group of feminist dons, the Senior Tutor, Dr Martha Pearce, faces her own battles: an academic career in stagnation, a depressed teenage daughter and a marriage which may be foundering. Meanwhile, the college library is susbiding into the fen mud and the students are holding a competition to see who can 'get a snog off the Dean'. The question on everyone’s lips is how long will Rycarte survive at St Radegunds without someone’s help?

Hearts and Minds

Such a wonderful book!
April 24th, 2015
This is my second Rosy Thornton--I read More Than Love Letters first, thoroughly reccomend it!--and I'm yet again blown away by how nuanced and patient the writing is. Hearts and Minds was a bit slow going at first, the minute I gave up expecting the pace to pick up, I really started enjoying these characters and their lives. Hearts and Minds has been my contant companion for the past few months--I read it in spurts, I'd gotten used to having this wonderful world and now there is a Martha-sized hole in my heart. I am sure I'll re-read this book many times.
