I loved this book as a child. Full of excitement and romantic adventure it was on my bookshelf for years and years well- thumbed from repeated readings. There are very few books which I am inclined to read more than once and this is one of them.
I searched for my childhood Puffin copy at the weekend but it must be stored away safely in the loft so I treated myself to a new version yesterday. I have read a few chapters and I still love it. This has set me thinking about other books I read and enjoyed when I was younger and whether they still hold the same attraction. I’m certain they will so I just hope I can find them!
It just so happens that one of my other guilty pleasures, Chris de Burgh, has resurrected the story and set it to music. Perfect for me!
