'It's 1808 . . .

'and Grace is living with her uncle in London. They have no money, and Grace is always lonely and often hungry. The best part of her day is going to Fleet Street to talk to the horses that she loves so much. One afternoon Grace can't resist taking a shiny red apple from a grocer's cart - and then another... Before she knows it, Grace is being chased through the streets! Will she be caught and sent to prison - or worse?

'Meet Grace and join her adventure in the first of four exciting stories about a brave convict girl who is given a second chance.' (From the publisher's website.)
