Author note

No Shame, No Fear is Ann Turnbull's first book for young adults, though she has written more than 30 books for children. It begins her Quaker trilogy, followed by Forged in the Fire and Seeking Eden. Of No Shame, No Fear, Ann says, "This is a story I have been wanting to write for a long time, ever since I learned about the early Quakers and was struck by their vitality and their extraordinary courage."
