Item description for Lost Baron: A Story of England in the Year 1200 (Adventure Library (Warsaw, N.D.).) by Allen French & Andrew Wyeth...

In the year 1200 in Cornwall, thirteen-year-old Martin's first day as page and squire to Baron Eric of Less Mortain is also his last when the Baron mysteriously disappears and his visiting distant relative and heir, the moody Sir Basil, takes charge of the castle.

Publishers Description
Martin, son of Sir Anselm of the Hollow, risks his life in more ways than one in this fast-paced story of Cornwall in the year 1200. King Richard is dead and John is king, a ruler ever ready for more money in his treasury whether it comes there honestly or not. When the Baron Eric mysteriously disappears, his young daughter Rosamund must bear the increasing burden of his absence. The moody Sir Basil, distant relation and heir, has taken over the castle--and would not be pleased if Eric should ever return. In an unguarded moment of genuine gratitude, Sir Basil invites young Martin to come to the castle as a page and squire. Martin is swiftly drawn into Rosamund's troubles and into a few of his own before the tale reaches its dramatic climax. By the author of "The Story of Rolf and the Viking Bow and "The Red Keep.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lost Baron: A Story of England in the Year 1200 (Adventure Library (Warsaw, N.D.).)?

An enjoyable book  Jun 22, 2007
Having just finished and enjoyed another of French's novels, The Red Keep: A Story of Burgundy in 1165 (Adventure Library (Warsaw, N.D.).), I was only too happy to give this one a try as well. While perhaps not up to the same high standard as The Red Keep, this book is still an engrossing read. Enhanced with charming illustrations by Andrew Wyeth, the book presents a vivid portrait of the grit and gossip, danger and drudgery, loyalty and betrayal, superstition and heroism of life in medieval England. The story itself is engaging, and the characters of Martin and Rosamund are highly sympathetic. The spiritually-tortured Baron Basil is well drawn, as are the gruff warder, Topas and his dangerous mastiff, Lion.

This book is perfectly suited for parents to read with their children, though children over age 10 could easily handle it on their own. My only small criticism is that the surprise in the plot isn't all that surprising--a perceptive reader sees it coming a mile away. If you enjoy books like this one about knights in armor and the age of chivalry, then I heartily recommend Angels in Iron by Nicholas Prata.
Escape to a Castle Where Adventure Abounds  Mar 18, 2004
This is a delightful mystery/adventure set in a 13th century castle filled with mystery, intrigue, deceit and, of course, secret passages! Set in England under King John (of Robin Hood fame), the story is a quick read with well-developed characters and a healthy dose of intensity. Best for ages 12 and up (or as a read-aloud for younger children).
A Minor Book by a Major Writer  Jan 4, 2003
I've long enjoyed THE STORY OF ROLF AND THE VIKING BOW by Allen French. My first reading of that book was at the age of twelve, and I remembered it fondly. Re-reading it was a pleasure, even with the somewhat stilted language. THE RED KEEP was another pleasure, while somewhat less. This book, I'm afraid to say, is not French's best work, which still makes it better than most. The story moved too slowly for me, though it had a fine, brooding quality, and the characterization was excellent. A fine tale of intrigue and justice set in twelfth century England. I do hope that some of French's other work, including SIR MARROCK find their way back into print. Recommended to boys of all ages.
