Description

Best-selling author Celia Rees pens books for young readers that garner both critical and popular acclaim. Sovay takes listeners back to 1783 England for an adventure set against the backdrop of political jostling between France and England. Sovay isn't your typical young lady, not by the standards of any time period. As rich as she is lovely, Sovay may often be found sitting for portraits-when she's not disguised as a man and robbing travelers, that is. But one day she robs the wrong person, and for that act, there will be a steep price to pay.

Professional reviews

"Sovay is a not-so-proper eighteenth-century English girl. She poses as a highwayman, becomes involved with treasonous activities, and winds up in France, working with spies as part of the revolution, getting involved with a French soldier, and landing herself in a French jail. Bianca Amato takes her time with the complex narrative, and her pacing makes the story drag a bit. Still, the story has a wide cast of characters to enjoy--from British gentry to street urchins, from charming highwaymen to heroic French revolutionaries, from sensuous villains to rough country folk. Amato ends the book by singing a lovely version of the traditional English ballad Sovay's story is based on. G.D. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
