Slammerkin by Emma Donoghue 

2000, paperback

Born in 1748 in working-class London, Mary Saunders lusts for linen, lace, and a shiny red ribbon that leads her to a life of prostitution- and a freedom unknown to virtuous young women. There are, however, three rules of the London streets that she knows she mustn't ever forget: Never give up your liberty; Clothes make the woman; Clothes are the greatest lie ever told.
