The Right to Ride Astride is set in the year 1831 in Northwest England and is the story of two young women, Hannah – 22 – masculine and plain, who hates men; and Sarah –18 – feminine and attractive, who knows how to manipulate men. These women defy the customs as written in the Holy Book, whereby the duty of a female is to marry and obey her husband. Hannah, illegitimate, having spent her entire life in boarding schools, where her only friends were horses, meets Sarah, an orphan, whose entire family has been killed by mining disasters or disease, and is alive because she chose to work in a brothel instead of a mine. When Hannah manages to ride a large and fast stallion named Hannibal, who, until this time, has never been ridden, Hannah and Sarah realize they cannot only survive, but with the help of a powerful family, they can prosper.
