this past week...and I must say, it was just as much fun as its predecessor, A Trip, A Tryst, and a Terror,
written by my blogging friend Martha Jane Orlando.
In this fun and exciting sequel, young Davy is discovering more and more about the mysteries of life in "The Glade", where his new friend Grey, "True Squirrel of the Old Ones" leads Davy on new adventures that only Davy and Grey and the other members of the "Old Ones" can see and hear. There is something for everyone here...danger, imagination, mystery, and action..but even more...we see Davy growing in faith and maturity and love for his family and friends...and most especially in his relationship with his step-father...which needed this supernatural intervention.
This little book would appeal to boys and girls as well as their parents and grandparents...it makes for great summer reading (or any time or season!) It's been a long time since I was a kid...but not so long that I can't enjoy this enchanting journey along with the "Children in the Garden". One quote that has remained with me from this story is this:
"I think it is this place that reawakens the child in all of us..."
