Gentleman Jack: Ann Take Offense to Anne’s Description Of Her

In Gentleman Jack, Anne Lister takes great offense to Gentleman Jack’s sister Ann’s description of her. “A bold woman in search of a husband” is not how Anne wants to be known. She wants to be seen as an accomplished woman, on her own terms. 

Despite the objections of her friends and family, Anne continues to wear men’s clothing and pursue relationships with women. It is this determination and strength that makes Gentleman Jack so captivating. The novel follows the lives of John and Ann Lister. The story is set in the backyard of the Lister House, named to commemorate Sir Anthony and Lady Anne Lister who were tenants in the late 17th century. 

Though only briefly mentioned, Anne’s mother Lady Anne is one of Lady Lister’s daughters. Lady Anne was married to a man whom she later found out had been unfaithful. Eventually, they divorced and she was sent away to live with her sisterhood as a penitent and reformed woman.
