Description - Misfortune by Wesley Stace

Lord Loveall, heretofore heirless lord of the sprawling Love Hall, is the richest man in England. He arrives home one morning with a most unusual package a baby that he presents as the inheritor to the family name and fortune. In honour of his beloved sister, who died young, Loveall names the baby Rose. The household, relieved at the continuation of the Loveall line, ignores the fact that this Rose has a thorn that she is, in fact, a boy. Rose grows up with the two servant children who are her only friends. Rose grows up blissfully unaware of her own gender, casually hitting boundaries at Love Hall s yearly cricket game and learning to shave even as she continues to wear more and more elaborate dresses. Until, of course, the fateful day when Rose s world comes crashing down around her, and she is banished from Love Hall as an impostor by those who would claim her place as heir.
