Daniel Defoes fictional heroine Moll Flanders is famous for her criminal and sexual adventures, racily portrayed n big and small screen romps as bawdy wench, fallen woman and proto-feminist trailblazer. But who was she? And what world did she reallyMoreDaniel Defoes fictional heroine Moll Flanders is famous for her criminal and sexual adventures, racily portrayed n big and small screen romps as bawdy wench, fallen woman and proto-feminist trailblazer. But who was she? And what world did she really inhabit?To answer these questions Sian Rees takes her readers on a journey of literary and historical detection, across continents, cultures and centuries.

Following Molls tumultuous life, the story moves from Jacobean England to Jamestown, Virginia- from the English Civil War to the struggles of the Powhatan Indians- and from the metropolis of London to the hamlet of Annapolis in the early eighteenth century.Introducing us to a rogues gallery of real-life versions of Moll, it is as fast-moving and rich in incident as Defoes great novel.
