    " A rich and wonderful look at the English Civil War from the perspective of four orphaned children who were forced into hiding during the search for Charles I. The children's survival in the woods, their ingenuity and adaptation as well as their quiet acceptance of their new circumstances made for a terrific story. But as the book progressed and the children aged the intrigue, adventure, peril, romance and politics were equally terrific. We all thoroughly enjoyed this tale from start to finish! "
