Ready, Steady, Review…The Royal Rebel

In our monthly fast feature, we recommend a page-turning new title in (roughly) 60 words.

Sophia Duleep Singh may have been a princess, but her childhood was far from cosseted. She faced neglect, grief and insecurity. 

This unsettled start became an extraordinary life, recounted in Saffy’s own words, from tea with a baboon, to being ignored in India and finding her dangerous calling as a suffragette. 

An inspiring, non-fiction insight into a determined personality and the era she influenced. 

The Royal Rebel, by Bali Rai (Barrington Stoke)
