Summary

When Greg stumbles across the beautiful ruins of Graveney Hall, he becomes intrigued by the story behind its destruction. He and his friend Faith are drawn into a quest to discover the fate of Graveney's last heir - Edmund, a young soldier who disappeared under mysterious circumstances during the First World War. But Greg soon finds that his investigations have a disturbing effect. His confused relationships with important newcomers to his life, Faith and Jordan, and his conflicting views on love and faith, ultimately reveal more about himself than Greg would ever have imagined....

Interesting and thoughtful

The religious debate is probably more interesting to thinking young adults than more jaded adults but was well done. The gay issues raised were sensitively handled and the historical aspects well interwoven. I don't think the Australian readers accent was well suited but the reading was fine.
