A Lost Treasure Found

I first read this book as a schoolboy. It filled my mind with dreams and many wonderful hours of adventure. I have looked for over 30 years for this book, uncertain of its exact title or author. What a joy to discover that it has been newly printed!I wondered how the book would read as an adult. After just a few pages I was caught back once again into the wonderful celtic world and lived again in the monastary at Glaston. The book is a great read for all ages with a story that lets you dream of a time when knights rode the countryside and life was filled with enchantment.

The magic of this story stayed with me to adulthood.

I first read this book in a Scholastic Books edition when I was a kid in grade school in the 1950's. It is the first time I ever remember being totally immersed and captured by a story about a distant time and place. Young readers really care about Hugh, a lame boy who is left in a monastery when his knight father is forced into exile from England. Hugh's search for the relics of King Arthur transforms him and works the same magic on the reader. Very highly recommended!

Wonderfully Enchanting

This book is amazing! My mom wrote a review about it here, I am the 12 year-old daughter she was talking about. I have never read a book like this before! I have read it several times, and it hasn't lost any of the magic I experienced during the first reading. This book has made me want to go to England as soon as I can! It has even inspired me to be an archaeologist when I grow up! To anyone who might read this review, I suggest you try to find a copy and read it. This book should be back in print soon, PLEASE!!!!!!!

Absolutely mesmerizing.

I won a library contest by reporting on this book in the fifth grade and I have never forgotten the excitement of reading it. I've held on to my copy for 32 years now. My 12 year-old just read it and she loves it too. I ended up traveling to Glastonbury in my twenties because of this book. It deserves to be back in print!
