Book Review: Swallowdale

Swallowdale by Arthur Ransome
Swallowdale (Swallows and Amazons, #2) 
by Arthur Ransome

5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads


Just as wonderful reading it for the second or third time! In this book, the Swallows are shipwrecked on the far side of the lake and establish their camp at Swallowdale on the moors above the lake. The sailors settle in for some adventures on shore, but the Amazons are being held prisoner by their strict Great-Aunt and have to make many daring escapes in order to join in the fun.

I just love the charming writing style that makes every little scrap of adventure so interesting. The characters are all lovable and with just the right variety of personalities. I adore them every one!
