Bored waiting around for her father on his estate in England in 1783, Sovay dons a man's cloak and begins to pickpocket as a source of entertainment, but when she gets snagged stealing from one of the most powerful men in the country, she knows she can reveal nothing about herself if she wants to keep her father safe.
