One I hadn't read before, but I really liked this one. It picked up the 16th century Oldknows from The Children of Green Knowe, the C19th ones from the Chimneys etc and C20th Tolly from both books, and introduced all of the children to the Norman Roger d'Aulneaux, whose father is building Green Knowe in the C12th century. I thought the time slip aspects were well written, and my only complaint is that I'd have liked it to be twice as long. As a personal interest, the author had borrowed the St Christopher statue I wrote my dissertation on to stand in the garden of Green Knowe, and in this one she described the sculptor actually carving him while the house was being built. Ok, she set the book in 1120, when her house was first built, and the statue probably dates to 1400, plus or minus 20 years (and potentially to a more precise 1391), but when she wrote the book she hadn't seen him in almost 40 years and I love how accurate her description of him is. I've seen the film based on Chimneys (filmed as From Time to Time, if anyone is interested in seeking it out, and Maggie Smith is wonderful), but never read it, so I'm keen to seek that one out next year. And there's one more left in the series, An Enemy at GK. I've now read all the ones I have so far though, so I'd better try and motivate myself to get on and finish Larkrise to Candleford, which was started early enough to have been book 185, had I not kept moving on to more interesting books instead! It would be nice to complete it this year though.
