Tolly returns to Green Knowe for a spring visit with his great-grandmother, Oldknow. Over the course of daytime ramblings and nighttime story sessions, present and past times of the family and the beloved house blend together. Meet Susan and Jacob, listen to the exploits of Susan's older brother, and champion the friendships that develop. 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. A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
