Product description

This is a story of love against the odds. 1662 - England is reeling from the after-effects of civil war, with its clashes of faith and culture. Seventeen-year-old Will returns home after completing his studies, to begin an apprenticeship arranged by his wealthy father. Susanna, a young Quaker girl, leaves her family to become a servant in the same town. 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. But is the love between Will and Susanna strong enough to survive - no matter what?

Author information

No Shame, No Fear is Ann Turnbull's first book for young adults, though she has written more than 30 books for children. It begins her Quaker trilogy, followed by Forged in the Fire and Seeking Eden (June 2012). Of No Shame, No Fear, Ann 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."

Review quote

"The author's eye for detail in matters of daily routines... is impeccably realized. Frequently moving and unwaveringly honest, the most impressive quality I found was the way Ann Turnbull's prose carries in its narrative drive the calm, centred, almost silent spirit of the Quaker Friends." (Carousel) "Although written from a sympathetic angle, it challenges the reader to think about the implications of religious fanaticism. Not easy, but fascinating and gripping." (The Northern Echo) "Here is a novel that needs a trumpet to be blown for it... The pleasures lie less in plot surprises than in the plain, exact and elegant language that takes you to the heart of each character's feeling... The end of the novel, which reduced the reader to tears, leaves you longing for the sequel which Walker has had the good sense to commission." (The Guardian)"
