In the 1840s most highwaymen are hanging up their riding boots and putting away their pistols. But there is just time for one last gang of misfit ruffians to attack nervous travellers as they pass through Harewood forest in Hampshire
And so it is that thirteen year old Matilda Harris is captured and forced to join a stylish, dashing, mysterious highwayman and his band of eccentric bandits. She also finds herself re-sponsible for educating 'The Brats' - two young escapees from the notorious Andover Workhouse.
This book combines historical events with a tale of adventure and suspense.
