Mary Ann Sate's hare-lip saw her persecuted for bearing the 'devil's mark', dismissed as a half-wit and recorded only as an 'imbecile' in the 1887 death register. In this fictional found memoir, Alice Jolly proposes there was more to Mary Ann than this, imbuing the silenced women of the past with a poetic and insightful voice in this rich portrait of Mary Ann's life.

"An exquisite piece of craft that conjures the warp and weft of the local textile workers whose history her protagonist narrates, bringing brilliant life to historical scenes and voices that would otherwise remain buried ... Akin to the ballads of Walter Scott and Walter de la Mare and the heroines of Mary Webb's rural Shropshire'" -- Sally Bayley, author of GIRL WITHJ DOVE
