KIRKUS REVIEW

A long historical novel, set against London in 1833, -- the trades, the court, the nobility, the colleges, the church and the homely details of daily life. This makes a very convincing background for a good tale of a 12-year old lad who comes to seek release for his father, imprisoned for his Puritanism. He serves as an apprentice to a draper, is then discovered and adopted by a rich uncle who succeeds in obtaining his father's release, and in starting them off for America and freedom.
