Miller revisits and reimagines the life of one of Shakespeare's neglected female literary contemporaries, Mary Sidney Herbert.
Two women. One bond that will unite them across years and social divides. England, 1575. Mary Sidney is a fourteen-year-old navigating grief and her first awareness of love and desire. Her sharp mind is less interested in the dynastic alliances and marriages that concern her father, but will she be able to forge a place for herself and her writing? Rose Commin, a young country girl with a talent for drawing, is desperate to shrug off the slurs of witchcraft which have tarnished life at home. The opportunity to work at Wilton House, the Earl of Pembroke's Wiltshire residence, is her chance. Defying the conventions of their time, mistress and maid will find themselves facing the triumphs, revelations and dangers that lie ahead together.
