L. M. Boston’s thrilling and chilling tales of Green Knowe, a haunted manor deep in an overgrown garden in the English countryside, have been entertaining readers for half a century. The fifth book in the series finally brings together our two main protagonists: the house’s blood relative Tolly and the Chinese refugee Ping, both of whom have featured in the previous books, but never together.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adela | 12/25/2013

    " Finally a decent Green Knowe again. The last one had no magic and no Tolly, both of which made it into this book, thankfully. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kailey | 9/8/2013

    " I usually like the Green Knowe books, and I adore L.M. Boston's writing style. However, this one is NOT a favorite. The depiction of black magic is just too close to truth for comfort. I would NOT give this one to children to read. Scary stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean | 8/18/2013

    " This one is much the best in the series simply because it actually has some action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 5/30/2013

    " This title is a bit different than the other Green Knowe books. I found it a bit scary actually, and I would warn parents that they might want to check this one out before they hand it over to a small child. As you would expect, the good guys win, but not before some really awful stuff happens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris Larson | 10/14/2012

    " The Green Knowe books are magic. Give them to every child you know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 11/7/2011

    " Fascinating ingredients: a dusty book lost for generations, incantations in Latin, a code language, and magic as ancient as Moses and Pharoah. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 2/17/2011

    " This was a delightful read, where Ping and Tolly work together to thwart efforts of a nosy neighbor who appears to be somewhat evil, from getting inside Green Knowe. The grandmother, as always, is a delightful woman! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 7/18/2010

    " Wow, creepy and morbid for a children's story, with curses, black magic, and whatnot...but this series is so imaginative, I'm still looking forward to reading the others! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 5/20/2010

    " By far the best and creepiest of the Green Knowe books. Made reading the first four titles worthwhile. Brrrr. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Siobhan | 6/17/2009

    " I loved the other all the books in the series. I felt like the author sort had lost the plot. It was very strange and distrubing. The main problem though was I felt it didn't seem to fit in with the rest of series. "

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.
