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 life style 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.

Synopsis

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.

About the Author

Celia Rees

Celia Rees was born and went to school in Solihull, in the West Midlands. She now lives in Leamington Spa with her husband and teenage daughter, Catrin. After gaining a degree in History and Politics from Warwick University, she taught English in comprehensive schools in Coventry for seventeen years. It was during this time that she began to write. Celia’s first book was published in 1993, a thriller for teenagers.

Celia now divides her time between writing, talking to readers in schools and libraries, and teaching creative writing on the University of Warwick’s Open Studies Programme. She writes for older children and teenagers and gets her inspiration from the world around her: newspaper stories, people she meets, places she visits. Celia particularly likes museums and art galleries. She first had the idea for Witch Child on a trip to the American museum near Bath.
