Our Review:

I recently finished reading Britfield and the Lost Crown by C.R. Stewart to my youngest child, Amanda (age 11). The story begins with Tom and Sarah trapped in an orphanage where the children are exploited and deprived of an education and proper nourishment. Sarah remembers life before being an orphan, but Tom has spent most of his life as one and doesn't really remember much else. He only has one clue about his past and that is the name Britfield. While Tom and Sarah are on the run across England, they see neat places and meet interesting people. Their adventure takes them to London, but it doesn't end there!

Amanda says that the story gets more exciting once Tom and Sara escape the orphanage. She really liked the twist at the end. She thinks that it will make a great movie! I agree with her on all points. I also liked reading about the historical sites.

Things that could have been better: the orphanage scene was exaggerated and slow going, and sometimes there were too many words or a strange choice of words were used to describe how they said things.

Disclosure: Amanda and I received a Kindle copy of this book. This is our honest and voluntary review.
