"Heartbreaking and poignant with a touching, positive conclusion." - Kirkus Reviews
"Gripping." - Booklist

The Children’s Crusade is a little-known episode in medieval history, so it is good to see another book based on it – although this is very different from Henry Treece’s story. Orphaned Robert, an extraordinarily intelligent boy, and motherless Georgette are among thousands of children spellbound by the boy on the white charger, who encourages them to join his crusade. The journey is fraught with peril and Georgette will need to call on her reserves of courage to survive. I like the fact this book is written from the viewpoint of both a boy and a girl, giving it universal appeal – the reader is drawn into the lives of these two characters and their love story.
