Author information

Ann Turnbull has written many books for young readers, including NO FRIEND OF MINE, HOUSE OF GHOSTS, MAROO OF THE WINTER CAVES, and PIGEON SUMMER, which was short-listed for the Smarties Book Prize. NO SHAME, NO FEAR is her first book for young adults. She says, "This is a story I have been wanting to write for a long time, ever since I learned about the early Quakers and was struck by their vitality and their extraordinary courage." Ann Turnbull lives in Shropshire, England.

Review quote

"Here is a novel that needs a trumpet to be blown for it. . . . We see the narrative unfolding through the alternating viewpoints of William and Susanna, and this allows us access to every part of a society which is both complex and fascinating. We learn a great deal (without a hint of the author stuffing the narrative with her research for our edification) about seventeenth-century manners, morals, clothes, medicine, reading, eating, and penal conditions. We learn about the quiet faith and bravery of the Quakers. . . . But the main pleasure here is the touching love story. The end of the novel, which reduced this reader to tears, leaves you longing for the sequel." -- Adele Geras, THE GUARDIAN -- Adele Geras, THE GUARDIAN
