Madame Anna Guerin is the fascinating personality behind the title The Poppy Lady'. Her idea of the Inter-Allied Poppy Day' gave work to women and children in the devastated areas of France, in addition to offering support for First World War veterans. Born in 1878, she was an early feminist, becoming financially independent.

During the First World War, and the immediate years after the Armistice, many people knew of Madame Guerin's reputation as a selfless fundraiser for French and American charities. Her speeches inspired many people to make generous donations. Having had her name lost in the mists of time, this is the first biography of Madame E. Guerin. The book follows her extraordinary story as The Poppy Lady', a woman born before her time, but confined to anonymity for too long.
