Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cecilys father has ruined her life. Hes moving them to occupied medieval Wales, where the king needs good strong Englishmen to keep down the vicious Welshmen. At least Cecily will finally be the lady of the house. Gwenhwyfar knows all about that house. Once she dreamed of being the lady there herself, until the English destroyed the lives of everyone she knows. Now she must wait hand and foot on this bratty English girl. While Cecily struggles to find her place among the snobby English landowners, Gwenhwyfar struggles just to survive. And outside the city walls, tensions are rising ever higher—until finally they must reach the breaking point.

Synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Maggie, accused of being a witch in treacherous seventeenth-century Scotland, escapes imprisonment but brings disaster to her uncle's door. After she is betrayed, she must try to save her family from the King's men at all costs.

Synopsis:

The third Jacky Faber book, now in paperback

Synopsis:

This powerful historical fiction debut, set in medieval Wales, follows Cecily whose family is lured by cheap land and the duty of all Englishman to help keep down the "vicious" Welshmen, and Gwenhwyfar, a Welsh girl who must wait hand and foot on her new English mistress. As issues of prejudice, heritage, and occupation come to a head, both girls have to find a way to survive.

Synopsis:

After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston—under dire circumstances, of course—Jacky Faber boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things dont go as planned, and soon Jacky is off on a wild misadventure at sea.

Synopsis:

In seventeenth-century Scotland, saying the wrong thing can lead to banishment—or

worse. Accused of being a witch, sixteen-year-old Maggie Blair is sentenced to be

hanged. She escapes, but instead of finding shelter with her principled, patriotic uncle,

she brings disaster to his door.

Betrayed by one of her own accusers, Maggie must try to save her uncle and his

family from the kings men, even if she has to risk her own life in the process.
