Synopsis:

Tom has spent most of his life locked behind the cruel walls of Weatherly Orphanage, but when he learns that his parents might still be alive, Tom knows he must do what he can to find them. He can’t leave Weatherly without his best friend Sarah, so armed with a single clue to his past, the word Britfield, the two make a daring escape by commandeering a hot air balloon. Now they’re on the run from a famous Scotland Yard detective and what looks like half the police officers in England. Tom and Sarah’s journey takes them from Oxford University to Windsor Castle, through London, and finally to Canterbury. Along the way, they discover that Tom may be the true heir to the British throne, but even with the help of two brilliant professors, it looks like Tom and Sarah will be captured and sent back to the orphanage before they have a chance to solve Tom’s Royal mystery.


About the Series:
(from the author)

Britfield & the Lost Crown took me over four years and 2500+ hours to write and edit. The books are written visually and are perfect for a screen adaptation, and I'm hoping for a movie to be made for each one! There will be at least five books in the series: Britfield & the Rise of the Lion, Book II is finished and takes place in France. Book III will take place in Italy. We are still planning Book IV and Book V. With each book, Tom and Sarah will be one year older.

Review:

What would happen if you took the best from the Potter books, the wonder of the Narnia books, the fun of a modern mystery, and combined it with some English history, and you've got a book that your kids will ADORE once it sets its hooks in them (about after the escape)! We started out reading the book aloud, but soon Miss Grace had slid it away from me and kept reading much later than she should. But she was READING. Voluntarily! When you have a kid with dyslexia who WANTS to keep reading a book you not only jump for joy, but do NOT stop them! She loved the book and can't wait for the next book in the series. My only concern is for how long it the series will keep her entranced, as she is on the upper edge that it is aimed for. For younger kids, I think they will be able to grow with the series, and see it really enrich their history studies (Shhhh-they won't even realize it will! LOL). It's a fun Summer reading books and your tweens/middle agers will love it!

Bonus:
Online activities will be coming to the Britfield website later this Summer, so be sure to check it out too! Sign up for the newsletter, and you can read Chapter One for FREE!
