Item Description

by Nikki McWatters

JF  MCW  Young Adult

A powerful novel about three young women caught in the battles of their own times.

After the success of Hexenhaus, Nikki McWatters is back with a high-energy companion novel that draws on the ideals of sisterhood, loyalty and courage.

In 1472, Jeanne’s father arranges her marriage to a French lieutenant against her wishes. As armed forces threaten her beloved home, Jeanne risks all to rally the city’s women in the fight of their lives.

In 1797, unbeknownst to their father, feisty and brave Betsy, her brother and their best friend secretly join the rebel army, hoping to liberate Ireland from the tyrannical yoke of English rule.

In 1960’s Australia, country-girl Fiona desperately wants to fit in at university and joins the anti-Vietnam protest movement, despite her family’s objections. When a friend is conscripted, Fiona’s beliefs are challenged even further.

A fast-paced historical adventure and empowering feminist novel, Liberty’s great strength lies in the authenticity and grit of its characters.
