Summary
In this rollicking, irreverent tour de force, Kate Grenville rewrites the familiar past. Joan is a a wife and mother of no great distinction, but in the life of her imagination she is on the front line of events, effortlessly subverting the solemnity of momentous occasions and cheerfully altering the course of history. "This fanciful feminist epic is funny and sometimes piercingly poignant."—Publishers Weekly
Summary
Self-confident, skillful, ambitious, and bright, Joan envisions herself as one of history's truly great women, but when she becomes pregnant, she finds herself caught between her dreams and society's expectations
