15th century old-fashioned adventure yarn

The Black Arrow - Robert Louis Stevenson

This old-fashioned yarn from Robert Louis Stevenson takes place in the 15th century during the War of the Roses and deals with Richard Shelton, ward of Sir Daniel Brackley, and his eventual search for revenge for his father's death and for the young lady with whom he is in love.

The language is not particularly accessible and takes patience. It is a typical novel of its era, full of adventure, bloodshed and loads of coincidences.
