Sacred Country, Paperback / softback Book

Description

With an Introduction by Peter TatchellWe're all something else inside... 1952. Standing in a cold Suffolk field with her family, six-year-old Mary Ward has a revelation: I am not Mary.

That is a mistake. I am not a girl. I'm a boy. So begins Mary's heroic struggle to change gender.

Moving from the claustrophobic rural community of the 1950s to London in the swinging Sixties and beyond to the glitter of America in the Seventies, Sacred Country is the story of a journey to find a place of safety and fulfilment in a savage and confusing world.
