Summary

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. This is the sixth book in this classic series. While eagerly following each stage of the new stone manor house his father is building to replace their old wooden Saxon hall, a young boy, part Saxon and part Norman, becomes involved with ancient magic that carries him through time.

A fitting end to a wonderful collection of stories

I really liked the narration of the story as well as for other books in the series. This story wrapped all the stories about different times told into a final package.
