This was my favorite book (along with the Phantom Tollbooth) for years. I love the descriptive writing, and the older, English, almost timeless feel that the author evokes. In some ways, this reminds me of the Secret Garden, with the old mansion and the lost treasure, and the overall feel. More for girls than boys, mainly because of the slight romance and female protagonist. Love it!
It took me a while to get into this story, mainly because of the proper English writing style, but by the end I was enchanted with it! There is a strong religious presence that focuses on being good and nice instead of attending church that might be hard to swallow. This is definitely for older children and might be interesting as a read-aloud.
@_Abi_ they did, it's called "The Secret of Moonacre"
One of my favourite books.
A magical book. Enjoyed it immensely and plan to read it again in the future.
a VERY intreaging book. they should make a movie about it.
The film the Secret of Moonacre is based on this book. Published in 1946 it's a great story that everyone can enjoy.
J.K. Rowling's Favourite book as a child
The Little White Horse
By Elizabeth Goudge
"Goudge was the only one whose influence I was conscious of. She always described exactly what the children were eating, and I really liked knowing what they had in their sandwiches."
