Excellent, Intermediate, Stephanie Bergis, Regency, Magic, Highwayman, Sisters, Family
Katherine Ann Stephenson tries to dress up as a boy and run away to help solve her family’s troubles when she is twelve, but she is stopped before she can get out of the yard. That doesn’t stop her from trying to do what she can to help her family, and when she discovers that she has inherited her mother’s magical gifts, she wants to use that magic to help them. She soon learns that magic is more complicated than it appears, and different people have different options about how she and the people she cares about should or shouldn’t use magic. As she and her sister discover the uses of magic, she also tries to protect them from their own mistakes, the villainous people who want to control their lives and use of magic, and a highwayman.
