What a different book. In 1799, the wealthest man in England finds a child on top of a dust heap (trash pile) in the mouth of a dog. He saves the baby (a boy) and raises him as a girl. You will have to read it to find out the whys. Good historical detail and good writing. The author..Wesley Stace is also John Wesley Harding, the musician. He weaves song writing heavily into the plot and has recorded those songs on an album.."The Love Hall Tryst", which you can listen to segments of online. Reading the words to the songs woven into the book, it was then very interesting to listen to the actual recorded songs. Great book cover too.
