A Paperback Original.

An unforgettable historical tale set in fifteenth-century England of a brilliant woman's defiance, courage, and ingenuity-from the author of The Locksmith's Daughter and The Chocolate Maker's Wife.

1405: The daughter of a wealthy merchant, Anneke Sheldrake suddenly finds her family bankrupted when her father's ship is swept away at sea. Forced to find a way to provide for herself and her siblings, Anneke rejects an offer of marriage from a despised cousin and instead turns to her late mother's family business: brewing ale.

Armed with her mother's recipes, she then makes a bold deal with her father's aristocratic employer, putting her home and family at risk. Thanks to her fierce determination, Anneke's brew wins a following and begins to turn a profit. But her rise threatens some in her community and those closest to her are left to pay the price.

As Anneke slowly pieces her life together again, she finds an unlikely ally in a London brothel owner. Determined not only to reclaim her livelihood and her family, Anneke vows not to let anyone stand in the way of her forging her own destiny.
