Synopsis

Forged in the Fire by Ann Turnbull

The powerful sequel to the highly acclaimed No Shame, No FearLondon 1665-66. With the plague raging and the scent of smoke upon the wind, Will and Susanna, separated by class and distance, struggle to reunite. Will has become a Quaker and broken with his father. Leaving Susanna behind in Shropshire, he travels to London, swearing to send for her once he is settled. But Will is arrested and thrown in gaol for standing up for his beliefs. This, along with the rapidly spreading plague and a dire misunderstanding, conspire to keep the lovers apart. A powerful story about how love and belief can overcome even the most terrifying twists of fate, this beautifully written tale will capture the imagination of readers of all ages.

Reviews

Here is a novel that needs a trumpet to be blown for it. The pleasures lie less in plot surprises than in the plain, exact and elegant language that takes you to the heart of each character's feeling. The end of the novel, which reduced the reader to tears, leaves you longing for the sequel which Walker has had the good sense to commission. The Guardian on No Shame, No Fear 'a very absorbing and touching book, which will bring this dramatic time in London's history alive for young readers today.' - Historical Novels Review
