Publisher's Summary

Surely Aunt Ida couldn't really have meant it what she said: "I only hope I will be taken before my mind fails. Fairies in the woods, indeed!" But when Laurie and her brother Doug visit her at Idlewood, they discover that Aunt Ida may indeed have something to fear in the woods.

Not her best

Any additional comments?

I normally love to listen to Elizabeth Peters' books, but this one falls a bit short of her normally fun listens.

The story is a bit far fetched and felt very contrived. It was even quite confusing at the end. I listened to the "climax" 3 times but couldn't find the continuity of the storyline. The "mystery" was somewhat (very) predictable and the love interest just wasn't plausible. It felt like a 'C' movie.

The narrator was great, as usual, but the material just wasn't there for her.

Ms Peters was evidently having a rough patch. I wouldn't recommend it, unless you're a 15 year old - maybe.

Three pages were skipped during the book's climax in this audio version. A terrible editing error that really ruined the main "twist" of the story. Pass on the audio and read the book--it rambles a bit but is still enjoyable because it doesn't follow the usual pattern.
