As I say in my profile, I'm yet another aspiring novelist. I've taken three months off my job as a civil servant to finish writing my first novel, Windrose Hall, which I synopsify as follows:

Windrose Hall is a young adult novel set in early seventeenth century England. Christopher (Kit) and Thomasine (Tom) are the children of a well-to-do but unconventional family living in Windrose Hall - a rambling Northamptonshire manor house. Cross-dressing, cross-tempered Tom longs to follow in her scientist uncle's footsteps; Kit is passionate about theatre and loves animals of all kinds... almost as much as he loves being the centre of attention.

Their comfortable lives are shattered when their parents die in a fire, and they lose the house and everything in it to their other uncle - a scheming Puritan. With Joan, their shy but resourceful housemaid, they set out to recover their lost inheritance, or find new lives amidst the stench and crowds of Shakespeare's London.

*****

Any thoughts on the synopsis? I'm not sure I like "cross-dressing, cross-tempered".
