It is the year 1195. Roger and Alice have lost their father to the Crusades, and now their mother is terribly ill. They set off in search of their mother's long-lost brother, who is a powerful baron and might help them. But on the way, there are kidnapped by two highwaymen and locked in an ancient tower. Time is running out. Can Roger and Alice escape in time to find their uncle--and save their mother's life? Recommended for ages 7 to 10.
In this gripping medieval page-turner, Roger and his sister Alice are kidnapped and held for ransom in an ancient tower. To escape and find their uncle, the children must summon all their courage and imagination. "Designed as easy-reading material for middle-graders, this has the virtues of an attractive format and illustrations, a fast plot, and even a feminist fillip: Alice is the more intrepid of the siblings, Roger's gifts are for music and ventriloquism."--Bulletin, Center for Children's Books.
