‘Risk. Risk anything. Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.’ – Katherine Mansfield
The true story of nineteen year old Katherine Mansfield’s escape from

stop her – at the age of nineteen, she arrives in London with a small allowance and big dreams. The next year of her life will change everything. In one year, Katie Beauchamp becomes Katherine Mansfield, and out of first love, disgrace and heartbreak, she forges the stories that will begin her career as a writer.
One hundred years later, Katherine Mansfield is still New Zealand’s most famous writer.
