London, 1792: The Kellaways move from familiar rural Dorset to the tumult of a cramped, unforgiving city. Against the backdrop of a city jittery over the increasingly bloody French Revolution, a surprising bond forms between Jem, the youngest Kellaway boy, and streetwise Londoner Maggie Butterfield.
Their friendship takes a dramatic turn when they become entangled in the life of their neighbour, the printer, poet and radical, William Blake. He is a guiding spirit as Jem and Maggie navigate the unpredictable, exhilarating passage from innocence to experience. Their journey influences one of Blake's most entrancing works.

It had no substance; no real story; a very weak plot; tedious!
Yes because some of her other books are brilliant. I'm so glad this wasn't my first Tracy Chevalier experience because it would also have been my last.
The narrator was OK but Dan Stevens is excellent.
All of them!!
Very disappointed with this. It's hard to believe that it could have been written by Tracy Chevalier.
