From the Back Cover
Abigail Chaplin has always been unable to find a position as a maidservant like other girls, because she is deaf. So why do the rich Fanshawes of Markyate Manor seem so anxious to employ her? And where exactly does her mistress, Lady Katherine, ride out to at night? SHADOW ON THE HIGHWAY is based on the life and legend of Lady Katherine Fanshawe, the highwaywoman, sometimes known as The Wicked Lady. A tale of adventure and budding romance set in the turbulent English Civil War, this is a novel to delight teens and adults alike. Includes historical notes from the author. SHADOW ON THE HIGHWAY is the stand-alone first part of The Highway Trilogy.
Kelly O finished the book (Dec 16): “On the face of it, Shadow on the Highway, appears to be a bodice-ripper of a tale, but it’s most certainly not. Deborah Swift has written another captivating story that weaves history with fiction, intelligently and realistically. It’s a fairly easy read for a historical novel which I liked, and also includes historical notes which is helpful but not necessary to appreciate the story itself. I would happily read the other two books in this series and would recommend Deborah’s novels to fans of historical drama.”
