    1. Violet Needham started publishing in her 60s, and for twenty years churned out children's adventures. House of the Paladin is the third of the Stormy Petrel stories, and the young Duchess Anastasia is kept sequestered by her uncle in the House of the Paladin -- one of her palaces.It's a Ruritanian-esque adventure story for Hugh, the protagonist, a half wet from Eton (i.e. he goes in for the rowing and swimming side of the sports), and brings in Richard and Alexander, from the first and second bo [...]

    2. I read this years ago as a young girl so it brought back happy memories for me. The story is a bit stilted and I was gobsmacked to read about a 15 year old travelling in Europe on his own in the 50s, drinking beer and rescuing maidens in distress! So different from today's mores. Frankly I loved that the hero was expected to be a responsible and sensible person from the get go. Very liberating

    3. This was my first Violet Needham book so I always love to re-read it. Plus, it's as good an adventure story as you'll find in this sort of literature and much better than a lot. Anastasia is lovely - the kind of character you can't help but root for.
