I am such a sucker for interesting and eye-catching covers. If you’ve ever seen the movie Darby O’Gill and the Little People with Sean Connery and Janet Munro there’s a scene where Darby almost gets taken away by Death in a very creepy carriage.

Britfield & the Lost Crown – Book Review

Britfield Series Book 1 by C. R. Stewart
Published on: August 1, 2019

If there wasn’t already a well-known book and movie by the title of The Great Escape, I would say that this book should be renamed to it because this whole book is one exciting escape after escape.

The Weatherly Orphanage isn’t known by its occupants for being a warm and cozy place to live. Instead, it is a place where the kids get little food and clothing and are forced to work long hours at a nearby factory. It’s also known for doling out harsh punishments for small infractions.

Their friends at the orphanage form an elaborate scheme to break them both out, starting an escape adventure that spans across England.
