Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1985

Christina is devastated to find out she is going to spend most of her summer with her grouchy bookworm uncle. As she spends her time swimming, exploring the old Victorian mansion where they're house-sitting, and trying to make the best of things, she begins to realize there is something not quite right with the house. Carol Jordan Stewart conveys every ounce of Christina's frustration with Uncle Ralph and his refusal to accept the mystery at hand. Ralph himself comes across as both irritating and likable. Stewart heightens the suspense by speeding up her voice and adding all the right pauses, and the combination of fine narration and expert storytelling makes this traditional ghost story one that will keep listeners glued to their headphones.
