it was amazing

If you want your mind haunted forever with good ideas, read this book. It's dark in places, but full of wonder.

Tolly has spent his whole life surrounded by uncaring people until he goes to live with his great-grandmother in an ancient house called Green Knowe. Gradually, as he explores and she tells him stories of the children who lived there in centuries past, he discovers that time does not behave within the house as it does in the world outside, and that sometimes, some of those children are still around.

There are several sequels, some very good, but this is the best. And should you read the book and find you love the house, you may search for the real Green Knowe in Huntingdonshire and visit.
