Aaah, finally, a book with a brain. Set towards the end of Queen Victoria's reign, this story has romance, a murder mystery, a bit of action, a plot twist, and interesting and compelling characters. I really enjoyed this one, & recommend it to anyone who wants more than the insipid shallow romances that seem so prevalent nowadays.
The heroine wants a life unlike other young women of Victorian times. She meets a highwayman the same day she finds out she's to be married. Meanwhile she is writing enflamed newspaper articles under an assumed name. Many twists and turns. It is a good story but not as good as others I have read.
Typical Drake romance but loved the story and action in this book
