The Crimson Petal andthe White meets Fight Club inthis page-turning novel set in the world of female pugilists and their patronsin late-eighteenth-century England.

Moving from a filthy brothel to a fine manor house, from theworld of street fighters to the world of champions, The Fair Fight is a vivid, propulsive historical novel announcingthe arrival of a dynamic new talent.

Born in a brothel, Ruth doesn’t expect much for herselfbeyond abuse. While her sister’s beauty affords a certain degree of comfort,Ruth’s harsh looks set her on a path of drudgery. That is until she meetspugilist patron Granville Dryer and discovers her true calling—fighting bareknuckles in the prize rings of Bristol.

Manor-born Charlotte has a different cross to bear. Scarredby smallpox, stifled by her social and romantic options, and trapped in twistedpower games with her wastrel brother, she is desperate for an escape.

After a disastrous, life-changing fight sidelines Ruth, thetwo women meet, and it alters the perspectives of both of them. When Charlottepresents Ruth with an extraordinary proposition, Ruth pushes dainty Charlotteto enter the ring herself and learn the power of her own strength.

A gripping, page-turning story about people struggling totranscend the circumstances into which they were born and fighting for theirown places in society, The Fair Fightis a raucous, intoxicating tale of courage, reinvention, and fighting one’s wayto the top.
