1648: Civil war is devastating England. The privileged world of Katherine Ferrers is crumbling under Cromwell's army and, as an orphaned heiress, she has no choice but to marry for the sake of family.

But as her marriage turns into a prison and her fortune is forfeit, Katherine becomes increasingly desperate. So when she meets a man who shows her a way out, she seizes the chance. It is dangerous and brutal, and she knows if they're caught, there's only one way it can end...

The mystery of Lady Katherine Ferrers, legendary highwaywoman, has captured the collective imagination of generations. Now, based on the real woman, the original 'Wicked Lady' is brought gloriously to life in this tale of infatuation, betrayal and survival.

Press Reviews

  • Little Miss Reads
    An enchanting tale
  • Karen Maitland on THE CRIMSON RIBBON

    Atmospheric and gripping... The complex relationship between Ruth and Lizzie is wonderfully convincing, tender and devastating in equal measure right up to the last heart-breaking moment
  • Maria McCann on THE CRIMSON RIBBON

    Begins at a cracking pace, plunging the reader into the turbulent Civil War period and the terror of witchcraft that came with it... A compelling novel
  • Alison Weir on THE CRIMSON RIBBON

    Impressive and inspirational... an original and entertaining story
  • Manda Scott on THE CRIMSON RIBBON

    Exceptional... Deftly written, uncluttered and impassioned, this has to be one of the leading historical debuts of the year

    A beautifully written novel about an incredible time in England's history, with a cast of intriguing and excellently drawn characters who seem entirely real. The Crimson Ribbon is very impressive

    There is so much more I could say about this novel, but I'll finish with an observation Ruth makes: "People have so many parts it is impossible to know them all." Clements has done a fine job in exploring the many parts that make up a person, and a society in conflict.

    The writing is subtle, but wonderfully done . . . well plotted and a fascinating fictional insight into a turbulent time
  • Mitford Society Summer Reads

    A wizard of a storyteller and master of the genre, Clement's follow-up novel does not disappoint

  • Sun
