About this book
In Georgian England, 15-year-old Sophia is trapped by the limitations of living in a man's world. Forced by her father to give up everything she loves, she is sent to Bath to make a new life. By day she is trapped in the social whirl; but by night she secretly swaps her ball gowns for breeches, and turns to highway robbery to take her revenge. An accessible historical romp, with an appealingly rebellious central character. Ages: 12+
'Stand and Deliver! Hand over your valuables if you value your life!' Sophia's duty is clear. Look pretty, behave well, and find a husband as soon as possible. But Sophia hates the social whirl of balls and masquerades, so under the cover of darkness, she secretly swaps her ball gowns for breeches, and turns to highway robbery.
