This final book in the classic Green Knowe series is actually a prequel and finds Roger, son of a Norman lord, traveling forward in time. During the construction of the family home, Green Knowe, Roger unearths two magic stones, which allow him to journey to different centuries. Capturing the enthusiasm of a boy stumbling into unexpected adventure, Simon Vance's narration is warm as Roger unifies future inhabitants of the land and uncovers a changing landscape. Vance's ability to switch between Norman and Saxon accents allows the listener to easily distinguish characters and time periods. His voice radiates the surprise and wistfulness of the characters as they realize that Green Knowe must change as time passes. M.H.N. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
