Abstract:

This is a touching, imaginative retelling of the story of two of history's most interesting characters: Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby, well-born Irish women who defied all conventions of their 18th-century Irish homeland and eloped to the small hamlet of Llangollen in Wales, where they lived as a married couple.
