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 lifetime, and searches for the treasure which was lost while they were living.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A memorable, beautifully written story.” Booklist
“As distinguished and truly captivating as the first book…A book as fine as this has no age limits.” New York Herald Tribune
“Simon Vance is a practiced narrator. His intimate voice beckons the listener into this special world, which crisscrosses time, neglected parts of the house, and the green heights of backyard trees. His presentation is as mysterious, perceptive, spunky, disdainful, and loving as needed to bring life to Boston's intriguing cast.” AudioFile magazine

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.
