Like all Kitty Barne's books, I enjoyed this family adventure story where children fight against the smugglers, and naturally win. (with a twist...)
However, despite the whole focus of the book being keeping the windmill in the family so that Dusty can be a miller as all his ancestors have been, there is no further mention of the fact that this is becoming uneconomic. Early in the book, it mentions how it would be good if they had an electric motor for windless days but this isn't followed through. He is made slightly better fitted for modern life by also gaining a bakery to make bread with his grain but still, this could have been explored further.
Unlike most of her books I've read so far, there's no music in this one, just painting! ( )
