It's not easy being a rebel. So many new skills to assimilate. Never mind strategic planning, weapons expertise and the like - there's bicycle-stealing, oil-stain removal and boat steering to be mastered first. And quickly.
It's the time of the Civil Uprisings and two young women set out to make a difference. Their only problem? They don't know where they are. Or where they're going. Or what to do when they get there. Other than that ...
This was a bit of a departure for a Chronicles of St. Mary’s short story. Instead of actual time travel, we get the telling of the story of the Battersea Barricades involving Enderby, Shaw, and Mack. Over nine books into the series and I’ve always wondered what happened during the Civil Uprisings. I loved being able to learn the story of the three ladies of St. Mary’s. A quick read, but very enjoyable.
