My thirteen-year-old daughter first introduced me to these books, and I must say that I enjoy them as much as she does. Jane Yolen does an excellent job of bring Scotland to life for the American reader (please remember that there is a Scottish glossary at the back!). In general, the author does not spend too much time on character development (outside of the children and their grandmother, the characters are very two-dimensional), but for many young readers, this will not prove a problem.
So, let me just say that my daughter and I both enjoyed this book, and we highly recommend it to you!

The White Lady’s ghostly presence draws twins Jennifer and Peter to the graveyard at midnight, which is a “white night” — the short, not completely dark, summer nights of the far north. (The things I learn by reading). Confronting the twin ghosts and a heart-broken piper requires all their courage and intelligence, and the powerful connection of “twin magic.”
I looked up “harling” of stone to protect it and found proof of the wisdom of crafts of old.
I also found myself agreeing with Pop that porridge also has magic. One can’t fight without energy, so I have some nearly every morning. This is third in the wonderful series, which I recommend for ALL ages because it’s that good!
