Publisher's Summary

England in 1647: King Charles is in prison, and Cromwell’s men are fighting the King’s men. These are dangerous times for everybody. The four Beverley children have no parents; their mother is dead and their father died while fighting for the King. Now Cromwell’s soldiers have come to burn the house - with the children in it.

Excellent Children's Story

Enjoyed every minute of this excellent, exciting audio book. Every child should have the opportunity to listen to this wonderful story. I shall remember this tale and the lovely ending all my life.
