2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Silksmith's Girl Reece Pine

1) Excellent story. Involving, draws in the reader with verve. Wonderful historical transgender story.
2) Through the vivid and poetic writing, I was quickly transported by the author to a different time and place. I happen to love circuses and have seen people perform aerial silks many times. The author did an excellent job describing the Silksmith performer and his silks. The relationship that developed between the Silksmith and the Bearded girl was intriguing and breathtaking. I was enthralled to the very end. At first glance, one might think this is a straightforward romance between two circus performers. It's far from that. The author takes two gender-nonconforming characters and tell us how they may have found their place in the world in times gone by.
