Book Description
If Shakespeare's Cordelia met Andy Jones' Jack, the resulting offspring might be The Birchy Maid, a saucy, sensible, self-reliant heroine for the modern age.

When a merchant prince sails into her life, she sets some very unusual conditions for marriage. This is a fairy tale for all ages, full of humour and wisdom.
