“Beautifully planned, hauntingly written, these chapters hold a thrilling intensity… The most striking novel in its genre since Tom’s Midnight Garden”
Times Literary Supplement
“Extraordinarily potent fantasy… the climax is both thrilling and intensely moving.”

Then she is sent to Norfolk to stay with old Mr and Mrs Pegg, where she runs wild on the sand dunes and around the water. There is a house, the Marsh House, which she feels she recognises - and she soon meets a strange little girl called Marnie, who becomes Anna's first ever friend. Then one day, Marnie vanishes. A new family, the Lindsays, move into the Marsh House.

I read this as a way of passing a long break... a few hours later I have a new favorite book.
The main character is one I can identify with on a deeply personal level; not to mention this is one of the few things to get me misty eyed.
That's how I knew this was well worth the price paid. My only (very) minor gripe is that there is no hardcover for this.
Regardless, this story is wonderful. The characters are captivating, the situations relatable even to this day and the ending is as touching as it is hopeful.
The ending is someone fast tracked and not in keeping with the rest of the book but the first half of the book more than makes up for it.
Predictable towards the end, and it felt like the conclusion was drawn out an extra 10 chapters.
Wouldn't read again, but would recommend as a nice easy, straightforward book to read. But it did suffer at keeping me reading (the only reason I kept reading was because I hate leaving a book unfinished).
Looking forward to watching the film
