Publisher Comments:

A Newbery Honor Book. Greta had always loved the fog—the soft gray mist that rolled in from the sea and drifted over the village. The fog seemed to have a secret to tell her. Then one day when Greta was walking in the woods and the mist was closing in, she saw the dark outline of a stone house against the spruce trees—a house where only an old cellar hole should have been. Then she saw a surrey come by, carrying a lady dressed in plum-colored silk. The woman beckoned for Greta to join her, and soon Greta found herself launched on an adventure that would take her back to a past that existed only through the magic of the fog.


A child of Nova Scotia who loves the fog is transported by it to a secret world of her own.

This is a wonderful book. It enthralls the reader with a mystical world created inside the fog. The book has a dream like effect that will warm you inside and make you wish you were there. The author has a clear talent in conveying vivid descriptions and leaves you turning the pages in wonder. It is a hard book to put down. This should be a must read for all teenagers. I believe it is this type of creativity that allows children to become emotionally attached to stories.

I love this book I read it years ago and was looking for it in our school library "I'm shocked they didn't have it for the students to read" I would love to find it in hard back cover. When I started reading this book years ago it was so hard to lay down, one of the teacher's had it in her class for her fifth graders to read, I was so shocked they didn't have it listed for a check out book. Thank you for your time I recommend this book for young readers and old ones!!!
