Rate this:
At the request of his father, New York City novelist Andrew Thale tackles an odd assignment - to check out an old family property in western Massachusetts, neglected since Aunt Harriet Thale's death years ago. Much odder is what he finds. Far from being deserted, Thale's Folly is fully inhabited - by a quartet of charming squatters, former "guests" of kindhearted Aunt Harriet. There is elegant Miss L'Hommedieu, Gussie the witch, Leo the bibliophile, and beautiful 19-year-old Tarragon, who is unlike any girl Andrew has ever met. He is entranced by these unworldly creatures and their simple life.

FIVE PLUS STARS. I absolutely love every single one of Dorothy Gilman's books. They're humorous, wise, thoughtful, suspenseful in many cases -- Gilman is a wonderful author.

This is such a fun book. Andrew finds himself in situations he never expected and finds life is not what he thought.
