    " This was an interesting read, linking the past when the house was being built, to the present day family of Tolly and his grandmother. A very poignant read, as the young man building the home discovers later residents of his home. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adela | 11/29/2011

    " This book started off very uninterestingly, but turned out to be okay in the end. We got to meet up with some old friends, and I had begun to think we wouldn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris Larson | 9/1/2011

    " The least interesting of the six Green Knowe books, but worth reading for the tiny snatches of Tolly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 8/16/2011

    " This is the only Green Knowe book I had not read as a child. It goes back to the building of the house in the 12th century and shows the changes all around the house but how the building survives the centuries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skye | 7/2/2011

    " Almost quite as lovely as the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 5/17/2011

    " A very sweet book. Nothing contentious or difficult. Looking forward to the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scarlet | 5/15/2011

    " A nice book, though I kept expecting something dreadful to happen to Tolley, like being sucked into the past to die of bubonic plague. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gena | 4/12/2011

    " Not an easy book to get into and not a new book, by any means, this is still worth a read. It has the feel of Susan Cooper's "The Dark is Rising" series. Still, the story gets under your skin. Best read it on a snowy winter day!! (You'll have to try it to see. . . ) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 12/29/2010

    " what a fun (if creepy) story. I wish I had discovered it as a kid because I think I would have totally loved it (instead of mostly liked it like I do now). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 12/21/2010

    " One of the best children's novel series ever: magic, treasure, ghosts - fantastic! For any fan of Harry Potter and Narnia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 9/7/2010

    " This must be what J K Rowling grew up reading.... oh, so charming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenne | 8/15/2010

    " Read by the fabulous Simon Vance! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 8/8/2010

    " This quiet story about a lonely boy and the ghosts in an old house that he befriends has been on my to read list for a long time. The book has a kind of dreamy quality that is very different from the action packed stories of many of today's children's books. A good read for a cold winter's night. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gillian | 7/6/2010

    " I read this every Christmas and when I have chidren I plan to read it with them every Christmas too. It's beautiful and magical and, like The Box of Delights, is one that I loved as a child and still love now. "

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.
