Love Disguised

Lisa Klein

Klein (Cate of the Lost Colony 2010) is back, with the most romantic vision of young Shakespeare yet. It's 1582, and 18-year-old Will Shakespeare longs to escape Stratford and his strict father to pursue acting and playwriting. In London on family matters, he meets Meg Macdougall, an orphan, who is attempting to overcome her past by thieving and disguising herself as a boy named "Mack." When Will is robbed, Meg offers Mack's assistance. The two develop feelings for one another and their relationship vacillates between friendship and romance. Has Will finally met the girl who will change his life forever?
