At the age of 6, while standing in a field observing a minute's silence for the death of King George IV, Mary Ward realized she was not a little girl. "That was a mistake," she said to herself. "She was a boy."
Where this realization takes Mary is the ostensible subject of Sacred Country...That she can find so much humor and magic in Mary's slow transformation into Martin is remarkable, but the book may be most memorable for its quiet realism and light, exacting prose. Not to be missed., Regina Marler

A real page turner with vivid and often bizarre characters. Full of the unexpected.

Little Mary, age 6, announces her revelation that she is not a girl, but a boy. This novel may just challenge how you think on gender issues.
