I'm currently on the lookout for a book that my boyfriend read while he was in primary school, he started in 1999, and it was in their school library, so he might have read it around 2006-2007, although the book could have come out earlier as we live in Denmark.
He read the book in Danish. (However it could have been translated)
It might be part of a series, but all the happenings are in one book only.
He doesn't remember the title of the book, nor the over-all plot, but he remember it starting with:
- An adult female character who is the caretaker of the main character being hanged.
- The child, a boy, teaming up with an adult male character.
And then he vaguely remember something about a tower, it's a fantasy story set in a medieval setting. - He says it seemed like the setting of might and magic - Maybe the main character was fleeing.
I know it is not a lot, but I hope that it can be enough, to bring us closer, as he's been searching for the book for the last year or so with no luck.
Thank you in advance!
