    A long wait, but worth it

    I have waited a long time for this book to be republished. When I first read it, I fell in love with this story of an ordinary family caught up in extraordinary events. On their way to their new home, the Bramble family witnesses what may be the kidnapping of a young girl by a powerful-looking man whose black car vanishes into a vast hole in the ground. Shortly after that Mrs. Korngold arrives as their new housekeeper. Things get more unusual after that: pictures move, young Adam has a vision of the entire world from a window of the house, and strange visitors come to beg Mrs. Korngold to see reason as a long, bitter winter grips the countryside. If you're a mythology fan like me, you'll recognize the story, but you'll be fascinated as it plays out here. Will the Brambles be hapless victims as the gods play out an ancient game? This apparently simple book put a hook in me, and I have re-read it many times since that first reading. Its images, and the very likeable Brambles, stay in my mind long after the characters and situations of other books have faded. And every now and then I simply have to go back and get caught up in the story again, as Adam and his family wonder who, or what, has come to look after them. It's a classic story in so many ways, on so many levels.
