    The Butcher's Daughter is the richly atmospheric story of a young woman s struggle to define
    herself in a world of uncertainty, intrigue and danger during a period of great upheaval: the
    Tudor era.
    It is 1535 and Agnes Peppin, daughter of a West-country butcher, has been banished from her
    family home in disgrace to live out the rest of her life cloistered behind the walls of Shaftesbury
    While Agnes grapples with the complex rules and hierarchies of the sisterhood, King Henry VIII
    has proclaimed himself Head of the Church of England. Religious houses are being formally
    subjugated, monasteries dissolved, and the great Abbey is no exception to the purge.
    Cast out with her sisters, Agnes is at last free to be the master of her own fate. But freedom
    comes at a price as she descends into a world she knows little about, using her wits and testing
    her moral convictions against her need to survive - by any means necessary...
    The Butcher s Daughter is a work of dizzying imagination underpinned by years of research from
    multi-award-winning author Victoria Glendinning.

    Victoria Glendinning is a British biographer, critic, broadcaster and novelist. Born in Sheffield and
    educated at Oxford, she is an Honorary Vice-President of English PEN, winner of the James Tait
    Black Memorial Prize, was appointed a CBE, is the twice winner of the Whitbread Biography
    award and Vice-President of the Royal Society of Literature.
