The Lovereading4Kids comment
This terrific historical romp tells how teenager Sovay fights against the restricting conventions of her time. Escaping from her cheating fiancé, Sovay adopts the dress and lifestyle of a highwayman and takes to the dangerous roads of eighteenth century England. Soon she’s swept up in intrigue in England before crossing the channel and facing the terrible dangers of the French Revolution.

Sovay by Celia Rees
Wild and beautiful, spoilt and wilful, Sovay finds that her cosseted life in rural England has not prepared her for life as a highway robber, for defending the honor of her family or for trying to save herself from corruption and evil. As Sovay becomes embroiled in adventures, a story of dark intrigue, and sinister intentions is revealed to her.
'Meticulously researched and completely absorbing with a wonderfully feisty heroine, this is highly recommended for teenage readers'
'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'
'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'
