[A] delightfully seditious heroine...Proof that a historical novel can be educational and entertaining, and nothing like homework.'- O, The Oprah Magazine London, 1649: King Charles has been beheaded for treason, Cromwell is in power, the Levelers are demanding rights for the people, and a new law targeting unwed mothers presumes anyone who conceals the death of her illegitimate child is guilty of murder.
