The Highwayman's Footsteps

Written by Nicola Morgan

The Highwayman's Footsteps Synopsis

Thrilling, historical high adventure from an award-winning author. Young William de Lacey is high born, the son of a gentleman. But he's on the run, having stolen money and a horse, and has taken up with a highwayman. It's enough to hang him three times over. Despite struggling with his conscience, Will feels free for the first time in his life - and it's all down to the mysterious Bess. Now can they survive the risks of the eighteenth-century highwayman's harsh life?
