Storyline

The 1640s, the time of the English Civil War. Colonel Beverley, a Royalist, squire of Arnwood and High Keeper of the New Forest, leaves to join the King's army. He dies at the Battle of Naseby, leaving his two sons and two daughters in the care of their Aunt Judith. A troop of Parliamentary soldiers and their Leveller preacher, Abel Corbould, come to Arnwood. The four Beverley children are smuggled out of Arnwood, taken to Jacob Armitage, a royalist forester's home in the forest and hidden there. The children encounter various adventures, become involved with the family of Parliament's new Intendant of the New Forest, Heatherstone, and eventually join a conspiracy to help King Charles, who has escaped from captivity.

Marryat corrupted
2 September 2001 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

This is a miserable distortion of Captain Marryat's fine novel for young people; importing modern motivations and behaviour into this thoughtful and humane story, abandoning the theme of life in the forest for a wholly invented adventure yarn. This series is awful, bearing no comparison with the fine BBC series of the early 1970s. Avoid it - read the book.
