That Bonesetter Woman

Frances Quinn

Genre: Historical fiction

Meet Endurance Proudfoot: clumsy as a carthorse, strong as an ox, with a face only a mother could love, she longs to be a bonesetter like her father. In 18th century England, that’s man’s work – but Endurance won’t let that stop her. An uplifting story about finding the courage to go your own way, when everyone says you can’t.

Meet Endurance Proudfoot: clumsy as a carthorse, strong as an ox, with a tactless tongue and a face she’s sure only a mother could love. She wants one thing in life: to become a bonesetter like her father. It’s physically demanding work, requiring nerves of steel, and in 18th century England, not a job for a woman.

Strong-willed and stubborn, Endurance won’t give up her dream. When her beautiful sister’s attempt at social climbing goes wrong, the pair are bundled off to London, beginning an adventure that sees them both make their mark on the city, winning, and losing, fame and fortune.

Inspired by the stories of two of Georgian England’s most famous celebrities, That Bonesetter Woman is an uplifting tale about finding the courage to go your own way, when everyone says you can’t – and realising that what makes you different can also make you strong.
