Best-selling author Celia Rees pens books for young readers that garner both critical and popular acclaim. Sovay takes listeners back to 1783 England for an adventure set against the backdrop of political jostling between France and England.

Sovay isn't your typical young lady, not by the standards of any time period. As rich as she is lovely, Sovay may often be found sitting for portraits - when she's not disguised as a man and robbing travelers, that is. But one day she robs the wrong person, and for that act, there will be a steep price to pay. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 oliviasbooks | 2/14/2014

    " Not bad for a historical novel. But by far not as captivating as "Pirates". I stopped after 224 pages because I have so many books on pile and reading time is precious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ilonita50 | 2/5/2014

    " Interesting, sometimes felt as watching a movie of that time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 M | 1/27/2014

    " I am usually a sucker for historical fiction, but this did not interest me at all. I managed to finish it though, because I had nothing else to read at the time. The whole experience for me was tedious, and I was bored out of my mind, which is surprising, because the idea of the book is not boring at all. Just the way it was written I guess put me to sleep. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelsi Calliari | 1/18/2014

    " Absolutely terrible! She ends up with a guy who you met for five seconds, it is so boring, no action. Dont read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/14/2014

    " Really good at first, but then it just got boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/11/2014

    " Sovay Middleton has led a protected life on her father's estate in the country. Her father has been accused of treason; he's a liberal, but has not committed treason but they are not to be found. Posing as a highwayman, Sovay goes to London in search of them. But then she steals the wallet of one of the most dangerous men in London. He is part of a spy network, working for the king. Or is he? Lots of suspence and romance "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anisha | 1/10/2014

    " It was really great. It was adventurous but yet took the time to absorb the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bethany | 12/21/2013

    " I wasn't terribly impressed by this book. I never really got into it, was bored by it, and ended up skimming much of it. The slogan on the front implies that there will be some sort of romance--don't be fooled! There's an implied romance at the end, but the love, that's love for her family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 9/4/2013

    " Another historical novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hanna | 4/9/2013

    " I really liked the book and the plot reminded me of The Red Necklace. What I didn't like was the ending. Poor hair... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffany | 4/3/2013

    " First half was fun, but the second half was boring and did not make as much sense because I began to skip. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bookworm | 12/9/2012

    " Not NEARLY as good as her other books. It sounded so interesting too! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 9/7/2012

    " I admit that I didn't finish this one. It started out strong, but then it seemed to want to go in too many directions. Plus, the heroine had several suitors in the beginning, then chose a miscellaneous guy at the end, which didn't really ring true. (I skimmed through about 3/4 of it.) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lucy | 6/25/2012

    " 2.5 stars. Sovay was historically accurate and well-written but I found myself disappointed by how little I cared for the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robbie Gale | 6/14/2012

    " A lot of French & English revolution polotics. Not interesting for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah | 5/3/2012

    " A disjointed, disappointing story of a fickle young woman who tries to save her father and brother--and pretty much everyone else in the story--from a spy lord attempting copy the French revolution in England. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ramona | 1/23/2012

    " Kinda silly really. Pretty incredulous shenanigans pulled by main character. Got into the time period but I don't particularly like historical novels. Might make a lively tv miniseries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 9/16/2011

    " I loved this book, it had mystery, romance, and a terrific original storyline.One of the best books I've ever read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alanna | 6/8/2011

    " It was good, but it wasn't quite what I was expecting.
    And I think Sovay relied a bit too much on other people for me to really like this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 5/23/2011

    " this wasn't the book i was expecting. i thought it would be full of tales of a girl acting as a highwayman and the adventures she would have from that but then it turned into a story about the French revolution and the Illuminati? it was ok. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenna | 5/8/2011

    " It had a good premise but it tried to put too many things in one book. May be if it was a trilogy and everything was spaced out I might have liked it but it wasn't so I didn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 4/24/2011

    " You can learn about the French Revolution in this book but really, Sovay can run all around a master spy's castle & he doesn't know what she's doing? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoire | 4/14/2011

    " Very good I liked it a lot. I've never read robin hood but if i had i might have compared it to this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 3/18/2011

    " It was entertaining enough, however I have read better books.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayla | 3/9/2011

    " This book has so many twists and turns that you can not predict what's around the corner. Sovay has to be one of my favorite female literature characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 3/8/2011

    " A splendid adventure with a likeable heroine. Doesn't pull punches and reveals interesting historical facts that I was previously unaware of, brought to life through the eyes of one undergoing the drama and confusion of the French Revolution. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexa | 2/21/2011

    " I really liked this book. Action and mystery and pretty much everything. READ IT! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Music_lover3 | 2/5/2011

    " I mostly skimmed this but otherwise it was actually pretty good. It was just a little too packed full of different elements, but I did like it. It's just not my type of book anymore. I'm glad I borrowed it, but I did very much enjoy reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andyjamjar | 1/29/2011

    " I loved Sovay. Family is important and this book shows that. A young woman overcoming sexisim to save lives and fight for fredom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caitlin | 1/28/2011

    " This book was really great, it was nice to read a book that didn't belong to a series. Sovay is like a breath of fresh air. I was gunning for her to end up with Captain Greenwood, but Leon's good enough I suppose. "
