During the year of 1794 in London, Miss Sovay Middleton is not your usual fair young maiden, but a highwayman masquerading as a man who holds up stagecoaches. Sovay’s father, Justice Middleton, a reformist who believes in reason, equality, and liberty, is known amongst the town to be lenient and fair except to authority. A Bow Street runner carries warrants and evidence for Sovay’s father’s arrest, charged with sedition. Yet the brave and determined Sovay protects her family’s safe- guard. During the time of the French Revolution, this novel, heightened with excitement, thrills of danger and wild chases, explores the realm of dreams and outwits the constraints of the regime.
