Extract Volume 1:
The good nurse fell against a chest of drawers, as she uttered this loud lament. The colour ebbed from her cherry cheeks, and her sturdy form shook with terror. She had scarcely turned her back, she could swear upon her precious charges, and now-only look at the murder of it!"

Extract Volume 2:
"What, you here again, you white-livered young sneak!" cried Issachar Jupp, reeling in at the door, just as Cradock was coming out. "Take that, then" and he lifted a great oak bludgeon, newly cut from the towing-path of the Basingstoke Canal. If Cradock had not been as quick as lightning and caught the stick over the bargeman's shoulder, there would have been weeping and wailing and a lifelong woe for Amy."

The Children Of The New Forest

Captain Frederick Marryat (1792 to 1848).

The date is 1647. The story is set in the time of the English Civil War and the Commonwealth. It follows the fortunes of the four Beverley children who are orphaned during the war, and hide from their Roundhead oppressors in the shelter of the New Forest where they learn to live off the land.

The Children of the New Forest was one of the first historical novels written for a young audience. It was particularly successful in fixing the image of the English Civil War as a quarrel of opposites, with dour Roundheads versus swashbuckling Cavaliers.
