Ranger’s Apprentice: The Royal Ranger (Book 12; Last Book) By: John Flanagan

It had been a poor harvest in Scanlon Estate. The wheat crop had been meagre at best, and the apple orchards had been savaged by a blight that left three-quarters of the fruit blemished and rotting on the trees. As a result, the share farmers, farm labourers, orchardists and fruit pickers were facing hard times, …
