Based on the true story of William Buckley, a bricklayer, the novel begins in the rural Cheshire of the 1790s as William and Het are making ready for the annual festival known as Shick-Shack Day. William has been chosen as the village's Shick-Shack - an ancient fertility figure, face blackened with charcoal and bedecked with boughs of oak - and Het is to be his Teaser.
