Shaena Lambert

Inspired by Petra Kelly, the original Green Party leader who fought for the planet in 1980s Germany, Petra is a captivating new novel about a woman who changed history and transformed environmental politics—and who, like many history-changing women, has been largely erased. Shaena Lambert, a former Rogers Writers Trust Fiction Award finalist and the bestselling author of Radiance, takes readers back to the Cold War era to explore love, jealousy and the power of social change led by a woman taking on world superpowers while grappling with her own complex nature and love.
