Will is a young aristocrat in Britain, fed up with his life and the direction his parents want it to go. He runs away, straight into the guns of Bess, a young common woman, who is out to seek revenge on the people who killed her parents--an entire army!
Together, these two will face unbeatable odds. They face red coats at every turn. They steal, lie, cheat, and make things up as they go along. And Bess is determined to avenge her parents' deaths--and forces Will to face the one man he fears the most--his father.
If you have never read "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes, you should. Then read this book.
Read this book anyway--there is action, drama, and the good guy's attempt to triumph..will they?
