No Shame, No Fear

Shropshire, 1662: Seventeen-year-old Will Heywood comes home to begin an apprenticeship arranged by his wealthy father. Susanna Thorn, a young Quaker girl, leaves her family to become a servant in the same town.

Will and Susanna meet and fall in love, but face opposition on all sides. Theirs is a story that speaks across the centuries, telling of love and the struggle to stay true to what is most important – in spite of parents, society and even the law.

Shortlisted for the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize and the Whitbread Children’s Book Award, No Shame, No Fear has proved popular with readers aged from 12 to 90.

"For all teenagers and adults who want to remind themselves how powerful teenage passion can be."
