In 1647 fights were happened between King and Cromwell.
Four Beverley children, Edward, Humphrey, Alice, and little Edith were hiding from Cromwell's soldiers in the new forest.
Because the children's father had died while fighting and he had been cooperating for the King.

At first I was very surprised and felt sadness.
This is a true story and children didn't have both of father and mother, what's more, their house get used to live in had been burnt by Cromwell's soldiers.
They transformed the sorrow and pressure into strength, their bonds of family moved me to cheer. ( )
