Book Description Report this book

In fifteenth-century England, when his father's murderer is revealed to be his guardian, seventeen-year-old Richard Shelton joins the fellowship of the Black Arrow in avenging the death, rescuing the woman he loves, and participating in the struggle between the Yorks and Lancasters in the War of the Roses.

I enjoyed reading The Black Arrow. The mark of a good author is evident throughout the book which is about the Wars of the Roses and will always be one of the classics for all time. The plot is in the relationship of the hero and the heroine. Richard Shelton makes a promise to the girl who is dressed as a boy to keep her safe which he finally keeps at the end of the novel. He becomes a knight in the process. When this promise is kept he is joined to her in marriage. To anyone who has not read The Black Arrow I would recommend it. The story is as good as any modern adventure. It has interesting characters, good descriptions and scene settings, exciting action, mystery, and romance. The style of writing is a bit old-fashioned but easy enough to read. All together well worth a read if you enjoy adventure stories and prefer your books to be free of swear words.

I first read this book when i was seven, i loved it. It took me to a time and situation i have never witnessed, but i lived that time through this book, through the adventures of Dick and Joanna.
