When Victoria Barclay, privileged daughter of the Viscount Grantham, has a life-altering experience as a young girl, it sets the course for the rest of her life. She is determined to make a difference in the world, no matter the consequence, and becomes a highwayman - or woman, as it were - robbing the rich and donating her pilfered gains to the poor. Life-long friend and neighbor, Phineas Dartwell, Earl of Leyburn, suspects his dear friend is up to no good. She's become evasive, and even worse, he cares that she's become evasive. When she refuses to confide in him, claiming it's for his own good, he severs the friendship out of wounded pride and a wounded heart. But when Victoria's activities are brought to light in the eyes of the magistrate, Phineas must find a way to acquit his friend - and dare he hope, future wife? - of the charges.

The Robber Bride
I liked the fact that the heroine was a strong female character. NOT a doormat etc. While this may not, in actual truth, be akin to the 19th century female of the Ton, I nevertheless appreciated a character who took her destiny into her own hands.
I very much enjoyed the narration - far better than some of the insipid, bored narrations I have endured of this genre.
