(From the publisher):
Twelve-year-old Isabel Campion dreams of freedom and adventure, especially now that her older sister, Sabine, is to be married - and all the household duties will fall to Isabel. But when Isabel seizes a chance to sneak away to see a play, it ends in disaster. Isabel's found out, and her father sends her away from London to live with her aunt, whom Isabel hardly knows. On the way, Isabel is attacked by brigands. They leave her alive, but completely lost and alone. A band of traveling players takes Isabel along with them - disguised as a boy for safety. Isabel knows the life of an actor is only temporary and ultimately not for her. But what is?
