The Battersea Barricades

The Battersea Barricades

A Chronicles of St Mary’s short story that is sure to entertain. If you love Jasper Fforde or Ben Aaronovitch, you won’t be able to resist Jodi Taylor.

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 …

Fans of St Mary’s will enjoy this glimpse into the past of some of their favourite characters.

Readers love Jodi Taylor:

‘Once in a while, I discover an author who changes everything… Jodi Taylor and her protagonista Madeleine “Max” Maxwell have seduced me’

‘A great mix of British proper-ness and humour with a large dollop of historical fun

Addictive. I wish St Mary’s was real and I was a part of it’

‘Jodi Taylor has an imagination that gets me completely hooked

‘A tour de force’
