This was charming! It's a lovely coming of age story with a dose of otherworldy magic. I especially loved the setting - there's nothing like an English country estate with a long, mysterious history for great atmosphere! I do wish we'd gotten to know Mark a little better, and I'd be a bit worried if some of the geneaology escaped into real life (yikes! LOL!), but those are more observations than complaints. Good story, characters, setting...quick read.... Yup, definitely recommended, both for young adults and adult fans of YA literature!

What a delightful book! While this is a Young Adult book, I found many layers and insights available to the adult reader. Rich, lyrical, mythological writing. A quick and easy read that will have you thinking about it for days to come. Fans of "Garden Spells" would enjoy this book.

Definitely a fun and quick read. This book had just enough romance, fantasy, and mystery to make it flow yet still remain a simple and light read. I highly recommend it!
