KIRKUS REVIEW

The King of England's orphaned daughter is robbed of her throne and imprisoned in rags; the King of Denmark's orphaned son is robbed of his throne and ordered drowned. How the two are wed, not knowing each other's identity, and then regain their kingdoms is smoothly told in a story that might be medieval make-believe, is actually based on a metrical romance. The Lay of Havelok the Dane. Readability and attractive appearance are its only distinctions.
