Then, their mother sings a strange song about her brother being a noble knight, and tells Alice and Roger to find her brother. The two children set out on a quest to find her brother, only to be captured by two men and held for ransom! Does their mother have a brother? Will they be able to escape? What will happen to them?

Good book! It’s a fairly quick read and is set in Medieval times.
