THE DICTIONARY OF LOST WORDS Pip Williams

Summary
Set when the women’s suffrage movement was at its height and the Great War loomed, The Dictionary of Lost Words reveals a lost narrative, hidden between the lines of a history written by men. It is a delightful, lyrical and deeply thought-provoking celebration of words, and the power of language to shape the world and our experience of it.
