No Shame, No Fear by Ann Turnbull

No Shame, No Fear - Ann Turnbull

A fairly well-written story of two lovers in 17th century England. I found the historical details interesting, as I hadn't really learned much about this time, especially about the Quakers in England. Quite good read though and I'd be interested to read more from this author.
