About the Author

Elizabeth Enright (1909-1968) grew up in New York in a family of artists. She spent her childhood drawing pictures and created both art and story for her first book, Kintu: A Congo Adventure, published in 1935. She later decided that she preferred writing to illustrating and went on to write many enduringly popular books, including a series about the Melendy family in The Saturdays, three other novels, and two long fairy tales, Tatsinda and Zeee. She won numerous awards, including the Newbery Medal for Thimble Summer (1938) and a Newbery Honor for Gone-Away Lake (1957).

The Blakes buy the Villa Caprice, a forgotten vacation house, from the state and bring it back from disrepair.Cute but not as fun as the first. House-cleaning is not as fun as poking around in a swamp.

Excellent children's book set in the period of the late 1950s or very early 1960s

I read this book during a summer reading program when I was a child. After all the years, I couldn't remember the name, and then I found it on a website, and immediately reserved them at my public library. My 10 year old LOVED them!

I would recommend this book to children (boys and girls!) and adults. I loved this story and the original book, Gone-Away Lake. What child wouldn't like to explore a grand old home filled with treasures?

I can honestly admit that in all my short years, only a small lot of books have grabbed my attention and held it as this one did. It was exciting and suspenseful, with something new around each corner. The characters are so relatable and real, you feel as though they've been your next door neighbor or best friend for years. Ms. Enright has out-done herself once again.

I think this book started out slow, but as it went on and on it was EXCELLENT! It you like the books where the chapter's end with you having to read the next chapter or even nex t word, than READ IT! I also like how it was a sequel from the first book, Gone Away Lake.
