This chapter examines both the representation of Liverpool and the representation of Liverpool women at various stages of the city's twentieth-century history – from its Edwardian heyday, through the depression of the interwar years, the German bombing campaign of the Second World War, the economic downturn of the 1980s and 90s, to the contemporary resurgence of the city – within novels written by women over the last thirty years. The texts considered focus on the effects of these economic fortunes on the female inhabitants of the city, and include the works of Helen Forrester, Lyn Andrews, Katie Flynn, and Margaret Murphy.

Keywords:   women novelists, Liverpool women, twentieth-century history, Helen Forrester, Lyn Andrews, Katie Flynn, Margaret Murphy
