Set in centuries past, the legend of Jackaroo tells of a masked outlaw avenging wrongs, and championing the poor against the heartless rich. Gwyn, the innkeeper's daughter, is too busy to heed such legends until, isolated in a snowbound cottage with her charge, the Earl's son, she discovers Jackaroo's clothes hidden in a cupboard. As the story races on, it becomes apparent that Jackaroo is as much a state of mind as a romantic hero. Gwyn learns much about herself, and finding the courage to flout the conventions of the times, finds peace with them. Rich, stimulating - marvellous for 3rd-year readers.
