The Highwayman's Daughter


Product Description
Product Details


There s nothing like a highwayman robbing a carriage to kick off a story and that s how this one begins. In this book highwayman s a young woman, and yes, I know it s been done many times before, but it never gets old. Well, at least not for me. The scene was slightly humorous and you find yourself cheering on the highwayman as soon as she draws her weapon. Cora is a character I liked from the beginning, even when she was breaking the law. She s got a valid reason and it s not just to line her own purse with other people s money and belongings. Jack is also a likeable character and from the beginning he knows he wasn t robbed by a man which keeps you reading to find out if and when he s going to run into Cora and if he ll recognize her. I liked the dialogue in this story which I thought was fitting for this time period and the historical detail was well presented. I also like that there s sort of a story in a story. Jack thinks Cora might be somehow related and that s when the sub-plots kicks into high gear and keeps you reading on. The secondary characters were also well rounded and seemed to have their own story too. Despite its 250 plus pages, it s a fairly quick read. If you like historicals, and like me especially look for ones set in England during the 1700s, I think you ll find this an enjoyable read."
