Format: Paperback
This is a fabulous book for children from about 9-10 onwards.They will love the mystery which evolves.The reader is lead through time, back to a lost medieval village.
Somehow the present is mixed with the past. Who is the strange boy the children find in the wood? Could he be from this century? or maybe he's from a time long past...

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 May 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a gentle, evocative mystery story about two children, Peter and Mair, who move from Wales to a small, isolated Cotswolds village where the pace of life has not changed much for hundreds of years. One day Mair's dog Tar, gets lost in the local woods and the children are forced to trespass in order to find her. In the woods they meet a young man called Goacher and come face to face with the past as they discover the secrets of Astercote, a village abandoned during the plague years.

This is a slow and dreamy book, full of beautiful descriptions of a country life that is now a distant memory. Reading it when I was a child the life that Peter and Mair live was not so very different from my own. Reading it now, their life seems as alien as the life of the village destroyed by the plague.
