Ralestone Luck

Andre Norton

Book Overview: 

Rupert Ralestone is officially the Marquess of Lorne--but with no family money or prestige, the title is worthless. He and his younger brother and sister return to the old family homestead--Pirate's Haven. Their only hope is to find the family's talisman, a great sword, and restore it to its proper place.

Recommended for fans J. R. R. Tolkien Hobbit and Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .I'se Lucy," she stated, thoroughly at her ease. "An' dis is Letty-Lou."

Thus sternly admonished, Letty-Lou ducked her head shyly and murmured something in a die-away voice.

"Letty-Lou," announced her aunt, "is com' to do fo' yo'all, Miss 'Chanda. I'se larn'd her good how to do fo' ladies. She is good at scrubbin' an' cleanin' an sich. Ah done train'd her mahse'f."

Letty-Lou looked at the floor and twisted her thin hands behind her back.

"But," protested Ricky, "we're not planning to have anyone do for us, Lucy."

"Dat's all right, Miss 'Chanda. Yo'all's not gittin' a know-nothin'. Letty-Lou, she knows her work. She kin cook right good."

"We can't take her," Val backed up Ricky. "You must understand, Lucy, that we don't have much money and we can't pay for—"

"Pay fo'!" Lucy's indignant sniff reduced him to his extremely unimportant place. "We's not talkin' 'bout pay workin', Mistuh Ralestone. Letty-Lo. . . Read More

Her brother Val watched the gas gage on the instrument board of the roadster fluctuate wildly as the attendant of the station shook the hose to speed the flow of the last few drops.

This was a odd sort of book, I must admit; it's historic, about three siblings moving into a house (their ancestral home, in fact) and the mystery which surrounds it. The elder brother was a red headed writer (but hiding it), the middle brother a dark haired air pilot who crashed and hurt himself...more

Andre Norton was my favorite author back in the 70s. Has it really been that long?
This isn't sci-fi, but still a good story with good plot twists and one final surprise at the end.

Very pleased to have rediscovered an old favorite author..

I first started reading Ms Norton about 40 years ago, but had never seen this, as is only read her fantasy and science fiction. This has moat of the wonder and mystery of those, but more humor and a wry wink. I don't think i would have lik...more

Given the author and the book cover, I thought I was in for a different type of story, but it turns out, its a family mystery of sorts. Nothing futuristic or magical.
That said, it was an enjoyable read with interesting characters, set in Louisiana in the 1930's.

This book is a mystery, first time I have read one by Andre Norton, I do not usually read this genre to be honest, but I liked this story.

Severely dated, and a few details had me nonplussed, but this book does have its charms — mainly in the form of the Ralestone siblings themselves.

This is Andre Norton's second published book, although it was written before THE PRINCE COMMANDS, which was published first but written later. It's a pretty standard adventure story, with a once well-to-do family that has now fallen on hard times and is forced to move back to the familial estate,...more

I know she is known cor her sci-fi or fantasy, but her suspense is fantastic. The characters come alive, and they are believable in their conflicts with the outside world. I hope that I can be as prolific a writer as she.
