Still on my Penelope Lively jaunt. I enjoyed this one too - a story about Morgan le Fay - reminiscent of The Weirdstone Of Brisingamen - 3 children accidently summon up evil in the form of Morgan and have to stop her from destroying their village. Again, there is more there to think about than just the good vs evil storyline with the children trying to stop a motorway from being built through their village.

Read it mostly because it is loosely connected to the Rollright Stones where I did some voluntary work. Obviously aimed at a younger audience. Still good though. Quite scary in places!
Loved reading this book after visiting the Rollright Stones. Powerful and well-plotted, and the atmosphere of a small Cotswold village is just right.
