The Unexpected Life of Oliver Cromwell Pitts: Being an Absolutely Accurate Autobiographical Account of My Follies, Fortunes & Fate

(2) 4-6 In 1724, twelve-year-old Oliver takes to the road and is forced into becoming a highwayman. Inexorably leading to London, Oliver's odyssey lands him in Newgate Prison--where he, older sister Charity, and their father each await trial. Inaugurating a new series, this Oliver Twist–like tale stands alone as a page-turning adventure full of cliffhangers, lush descriptions, and neatly woven-in historical details.
