    1. Are you a person in my story, or am I a person in yours Once in a while, we choose a book attracted by its cryptic blurb There is a certain something in a vague description that entices us to take a small leap of faith and dedicate our precious reading time to it This was the case with Robert Bluck s novel I was intrigued, but I didn t expect much Frankly, I thought this would be the same old in a good way, though story of a girl who is transported to a fairytale world And I began reading it dur [...]

    6. via my blog bookstalkerblog.wordpress How much swifter are the changes in our bodies and our minds And yet we strongly wish to ignore them, to believe that I unlike everything else in the universe will somehow stay the same for ever and ever Emma knows she can t say what she has witnessed, her family would think she is going mad Is she Or is there something supernatural going on Men do not walk out of churning rivers, do they People s reflections don t appear in picture frames and smile directly [...]


    7. Sorry to those who liked this book It is mostly down to taste that I did not really fall in love with this novel I was expecting something darker, deeper than this little mystery from the land of fairies and woodreeves I will not bore anybody with a summary of the contents, as these are provided by the blurb This book is well written although there are a lot of repetitions Emmaland , Twinland , the twins are quarreling, Emma is weird etc , none of the characters really develop over the duration [...]


    8. On the face of it, this is a fairly light story, based in a modern day setting, of a typical family and their ups and downs However, as the opening chapter hints, things aren t always what they seem and this book goes on to become a mini saga of a family line The story develops into a complex plot the story weaving backwards and forwards and involves history, geography, science, natural science, architecture, gardening, building and human psychology There is also an element of fantasy and other [...]


    9. Utter magic Have you ever read a book and immediately after finishing wish you could un read it to experience it all as new again This book has left me pining for all the feel good emotions it dished out I loved Enid Blyton as a child and I felt like that little girl again when reading this I don t even want to give a summary of the story because the words I have will never be lovely enough Just know that at the centre of this is an enchanting cottage encased in a stone circle and full of magic [...]


    10. What a great story The description is really not great This is ultimately a story of family, with a uniquely twisted plot following them from a family in a tough place to one that is tightly united Toss in some wonder and the beauty of nature and a uniquely found friend and what you get is a story thar is hard to put down I enjoyed it much than I thought I would based on the description It is different in a good way with power story and rich characters Full disclosure I received a copy of the b [...]


    11. What a magical place the cottage seemed to be, with its quirky design and beautiful gardens,it really did sound enchanting.For me,the rest of the book wasn t quite so magical,though it held some charm.The ghost sightings all seemed a bit of a random way to tie the story together, and I felt there was no puzzle till Matthew wrote of one.I think my best description would be, that it s a pleasant read and there s nothing wrong with that
