Review by

The last in the "Green Knowe" series takes us back to the very beginning of the story, to half-Norman, half-Saxon Roger, who sees Green Knowe being built and becomes the first boy to live there and to love the place. Later he finds a pair of ancient, chair-like stones in a nearby wood, which prove to have magical properties, enabling him to travel back and forth in time and check on Green Knowe's safety in the future. This allows him to meet the children (or most of them) from the earlier books, although he's frightened and horrified by Tolly's 20th century world – with reason, as the book ends with an act of heartwrenching vandalism.
