These books focus on people who are staying at the old mansion known either as Green Knowe or Green Noah, which was apparently based on the author's own home. Ghosts are evident in a very matter-of-fact way, and the genre is an unusual mixture of adventure, history and fantasy. The writing is perhaps a bit rambling in places, but the children seem quite real and the books are very readable.
Children from the age of about nine or ten upwards who enjoy a wide range of reading matter would probably like this, and it would also make an excellent book for family reading aloud.
Three and a half stars, really.
