BRITFIELD & THE LOST CROWN is a fast-paced adventure novel that transports the reader from the smoldering crags of Yorkshire, through the heart of England, and finally to the magnificent shores of Dover. Creating an interactive world of mystery and adventure, Britfield is about friendship, family, loyalty, and courage.
ESCAPING FROM WEATHERLY ORPHANAGE, a place where learning is suppressed, and children are treated as labor, best friends Tom and Sarah outsmart the nasty owners Mr. and Mrs. Grievous, the seedy caretaker Mr. Speckle, and even the legendary watchdog Wind. Yet shortly before leaving, Tom discovers a clue that will change his life forever.
Relentlessly chased by the illustrious Detective Gowerstone, the two narrowly escape by commandeering a hot air balloon and flying over central England. Crashing at Oxford University, they receive the sympathy of Dr. Hainsworth, an esteemed professor who decides to help them safely get to London.
Forced to land the balloon at Windsor Castle, Hainsworth asks for help from former student and head butler Philip. After a white-knuckled chase through St. Paul’s Cathedral and the London underground, with Detective Gowerstone still in hot pursuit, Tom and Sarah are nearly out of time.adventure, courage, England, family, fiction, friendship, history, Loyalty, middle grade, Pre-Teen, young adult
