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.

In this second book, Tolly returns for Easter vacation to find that the portrait of Toby, Alexander, and Linnet is missing - loaned out by his grandmother to a museum, possibly to be sold at the end of the exhibition because she needs money to mend the roof. Tolly is horrified, and then, with the help of Susan and Jacob (Susan being an ancestor of his from 1800), he learns about Green Knowe during their lifetimes, and, yes, finds the treasure which was lost while they were living.

    " Much like Tolly, I was a little disappointed that Alexander, Linnet and Toby weren't at Green Knowe this time. This book was a little different from its predecessor. I'm curious to find out which children, if any, will make a reappearance in the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Polly | 2/12/2014

    " Not as charming as the first book, but still pretty delightful! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 1/24/2014

    " I have just discovered this series of children's fiction from the 1950's. They are charmingly done, with lots of historical information and naturalistic details added in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 1/7/2014

    " This was one of my favorite books when I was a kid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CLM | 1/6/2014

    " I'm not saying this is my favorite because I think I like the first one best but I have always been fascinated by the embroidery done with hair in this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen Barker | 12/30/2013

    " known also as 'The Treasure of Green Knowe' "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 12/17/2013

    " My greatest suspense was whether the house residents from a past era were ghosts or not. I'm interpreting the interactions as an unspecified time overlap. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 11/11/2013

    " Listening to. Simon Vance is a fantastic narrator... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Alcorn | 11/5/2013

    " That was a good, fun read. And now, I can watch "From Time To Time", which seems to have an excellent cast and I'm very excited about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 10/1/2013

    " I think this is my least favorite of the Green Knowe books. There are some rather embarassing racial things (it was originally published in 1958) and overall it's just not as intriguingly plotted as Children of Green Knowe. The rest of the series is a lot of fun, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 McKinley | 8/31/2013

    " Liked this, very charming--didn't love it as much as The Children of Green Knowe, but then--that was a hard one to top. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 7/27/2013

    " Wonderful series of books for "children" of all ages. Lucy Boston uniquely writes about extremely difficult life experiences with lovliness and optimism. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Siobhan | 1/31/2013

    " I remember enjoying this book. I was glad to see the returning of Toly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauri | 1/20/2013

    " Listened to CD on family vacation. I think it was well written and a fun story about an old house with ghosts. I would like to read more of the series with the family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauriero | 3/20/2012

    " Oh...I just love finding an author who can capture the imagination and take us into another world without needing a nasty villain to make a story complete. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roshni | 3/16/2012

    " Average children's fantasy book, not very fast-paced or exciting "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 9/27/2011

    " I liked this book. It was interesting to get to know children from another era of Green Knowe. The author seemed pretty faithful to perceptions and treatment of slaves. I appreciate the author's careful handling of characters and their development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris Larson | 6/29/2011

    " I like Linnet (from the first book) better than Susan, but as long as Tolly and Mrs. Oldknowe are there, you can't really go wrong. "

  • 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.
