Description - Ironhead, or, Once a Young Lady by Jean-Claude van Rijckeghem
Eighteen-year-old Constance is not interested in marriage or in being a young lady. But for a young woman coming of age in the early 1800s, that's just about all that's available to her. When her parents arrange her a marriage with a man more than twice her age, she's powerless to resist. Stance couldn't possibly find her newfound husband less appealing, but what can she do?
Here's what: four months into the marriage, she can slip out of their bed in the middle of the night, and she can put on his clothes. She can look in the mirror and like what she sees.
