14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By John Mogridge on 7 Oct. 2008
The Stars of Fortune are those on the coat of arms of the Washington family which developed into the Stars and Stripes of the American flag; for this is a story of an ancestor of George Washington, an Englishman, living in the time of Mary Tudor at Sulgrave Manor, Northants, not far from Woodstock, with his lively family.
Princess Elizabeth was living near Woodstock, a virtual prisoner, and her presence gave opportunities for serious plots--and highly dangerous escapades in which the four eldest children were involved.
It is a vivid account of family doings and secret adventure against a background of life in that corner of Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire where the Washingtons lived. The author's own illustrations complement the clarity of the story. As always she is detailed and meticulous in her approach to this interesting subject.
