Master Rosalind

(1974)
A novel by

 
An exciting new ebook from the folks at Beebliome Books!

From renowned authors, John and Patricia Beatty, an exciting annotated historical novel for readers age 12 and older.

Twelve year old Rosalind Broom, raised by her clergyman grandfather in a small village near Oxford, does not relish his plans for her marriage to a suitably endowed gentleman. Instead, she dreams of an independent life, perhaps in London. Bright, high-spirited, and willful, she ignores her grandfather's warnings, and disguises herself as a boy. Kidnapped and brought to London, she falls in with thieves and cutpurses, whom she later leaves to join Burbage's company of actors.

Still accepted as a boy, she plays female roles, including that of Rosalind in As You Like It. Her deception is eventually revealed to no less a person than Queen Elizabeth. A well-researched, fast-moving historical adventure, which brilliantly suggests the ambiance of Elizabethan England.
