About the Book

Daisy & Woolf by Michelle Cahill is an enthralling tale that interweaves two distinct yet interconnected narratives. Set in different eras, the book juxtaposes the lives of two remarkable women, Daisy and Woolf, separated by time but bound by the common thread of resilience and self-discovery.

Through Daisy’s modern-day struggle with identity and societal expectations, and Woolf’s early 20th-century pursuit of artistic expression and liberation, the novel delves deep into themes of feminism, self-empowerment, and the enduring human spirit.

Cahill’s lyrical prose beautifully explores the complexities of womanhood across generations, leaving readers captivated by the enduring relevance of these timeless themes.
