At the age of six, Mary Ward, the child of a poor farming family in Suffolk, has a revelation: 'I am not Mary. That is a mistake. I am not a girl. I'm a boy.'

So begins a heroic struggle to change gender, while around her others also strive to find a place of safety and fulfilment in a savage and confusing world.

'There are few writers out there with the dexterity or emotional intelligence to rival that of the great Rose Tremain'  Irish Times
