    " This book was a mix of things for me. I did like the book a lot, although at times, I would feel like this was too chilling a ghost story for me to read and I would want to set the book down. Or, I would feel saddened and wish I had never even heard of the book. I didn't ever put the book down, though, and that's why it was such a good book. It made me feel such deep emotions and I could never stop reading. I was fascinated most, though, by how Mary Downing Hahn could write about such an ordinary seeming girl with such an ordinary seeming story line, and turn it into a thrilling read with a kinda, sorta, depends-on-how-you-look-at-it, happy ending. If you are in the mood for an awesome ghost story right before bed a couple of nights in a row, then this is definitely the book for you!! "

    " I have returned to MDH as an adult after being a major fan as young person. I am having a hard time deciding whether I read the works differently as an adult or maybe "The Old Willis Place" isn't enough to make a conclusion out of. I think I should read more MDH. Getting to it: the first part included DRAMATIC foreshadow that is borderline insulting to the adult reader (note: I ate it up as a a kid). The middle part dragged, but I still enjoyed the "solving" of the mystery part of the climax and the resolution wasn't so predictable. So, I liked it....even as a grown up she still gave me the chills. "
