Description

Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and its impact on British politics, this action-driven novel shows once again that Celia Rees is one of our very best writers for teenage readers. Wild and beautiful, spoilt and wilful, Sovay finds that her cosseted upbringing in rural England has not prepared her for life as a highway robber, for defending the honour of her family or for trying to save herself from corruption and evil. As Sovay becomes more and more embroiled in adventures she could never have imagined, a story of dark intrigue, thwarted passions and sinister intentions is revealed to her. Will she be able to survive, and if she does so, at what cost?show more

Review quote

'Rees's speciality is depicting strong, captivating heroines in a historical setting saturated with adventure, romance and emotional intelligence ... Sovay is a gorgeous, breathless, headlong romp of a read' The Times 'Meticulously researched and completely absorbing with a wonderfully feisty heroine, this is highly recommended for teenage readers' The Independent 'There's plenty of action, political intrigue and historical detail. Yet it is the romance, thwarted passions, sinister intentions and of course the heroine herself, that make it spot-on for teenage girls' Bookseller 'Celia Rees cleverly combines historical detail with a riveting plot ... This is a rollicking and romantic adventure with a charismatic, tough female lead. It's smart and pacy by turns and topped off with a nice gothic twist' Waterstone's Books Quarterlyshow more
