Publisher's Summary

Gilly Ramsey's lonely childhood was brightened only by visits to her godmother until her death, when the then grown-up Gilly inherited the family cottage, Thornyhold. With its magical and peaceful strength and its sovereign defenses against evil, Thornyhold strikes an end to Gilly's loneliness, despite its revealing her family's history of witchcraft.

Good story not so good sound quality.

This has been a favourite Mary Stewart story of mine for many years Hhwever, this audio version was done in 1989 on cassette so the quality is not great with some sibilant speech and volume variation. This can be heard on the sample extract.

The narration though is good and it is not an expensive purchase and it is a neat whimsical story.

An old favorite

This story was enjoyed but sadly spoilt by low volume and too fast speech.Mary Stewart is one of my favourite authors.
