Great adventure yarn

I loved this book while growing up, so just listened to it to remember. It's fully as good as Treasure Island--secret passages, intrigue, and a teenage hero, all against a colorful background of the War of the Roses. Even better than Treasure Island for those who like a love interest in the story.

An Enjoyable Tale

This was an engaging tale, well voiced by the narrator, and exciting from first to last. Of course there is a lot of terminology about knights and castles, but learning about that period (even if it is through the eyes of a 19th century author) is fascinating. If you enjoy stories about the "days of yore" with a sweet love story thrown in for good measure, this is for you.
