Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Adea | 12/28/2013

    " I LOVE the Green Knowe Books! (3) I read it as a young teen and loved the mystery and ghostly encounters. A must read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Cassandra | 12/17/2013

    " This was a huge departure from the rest of the series. While I liked it, it should have been separate from the Green Knowe books. The tone is different, and it belongs in a different genre altogether as the others are more fantasy. The ending was terribly sad, but predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Siobhan | 11/15/2013

    " I remember enjoying this book at the time. This was one of the less memorable book of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by David | 10/19/2012

    " This completely charming series doesn't get enough attention from the usual YA fans. Probably not enough plot for a lot of kids, but the atmosphere is enchanting and creepy when necessary. Totally beguiling. "

About the Author

Lucy Maria Boston (1892–1990) purchased a ramshackle manor house near Cambridge, England, in 1935, which over a period of two years she lovingly restored. It is this house that inspired her, at the age of sixty-two, to take pen in hand and create the beloved Green Knowe series.
