At the end of the first millennium, Princess Ymma of Normandy was forced by England’s King Ethelred to marry a young Viking, Lord Silence of Cumbria. The fourteen-year-old princess doesn’t realize that her betrothed is really a she. They forge a pact to keep this secret and exploit Silence’s male privileges, but events conspire to send them dashing through the mud of England fleeing an enraged despot’s murderous rampage. Sparkling with deliberate clashes of period and style and with nimble physical comedy, Silence won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize in 1998.
