What a great book! If Jane Eyre wandered into a swashbuckling adventure story, this would be the result. Bonnie and Sylvia Green are two intrepid orphans who come up against a dreadful governess, a plot to take over their ancestral home, and the man-eating wolves of Willoughby Chase. I love any book that makes me so excited to read more books by the author that I can't do anything else except track down all of their other books.

I remember loving this book as a kid and it is still just as great. Even though I knew how it would end I was still on the edge of my seat until the last page.
