In Hugger Mugger

Joyce Consolino Gatta

In Hugger Mugger tells the story of two women, one a member of the nobility and one a commoner who are both constrained by their sex and position to live the lives they want. They are forced to hide, to lie and to suffer in order to survive under the English laws.

Mary Sidney, a noblewoman, vows to write the greatest works in the English language, to fulfil the ambition of her deceased brother, but she must use trickery and deceit to have her writings published. Sarah Burton, a commoner, scarred by a nobleman, uses her intellect to outfox the Crown.

After a chance meeting, the women form a friendship that enables them to get what they desire most.
