"A gorgeous fantasy in the spirit of Pan's Labyrinth and John Connolly's The Book of Lost Things. Set in a world similar to our own, during a war that parallels World War II, A Green and Ancient Light is the stunning story of a boy who is sent to stay with his grandmother for the summer in a serene fishing village. Their tranquility is shattered by the crash of a bullet-riddled enemy plane, the arrival of grandmother's friend Mr. Girandole--a man who knows the true story of Cinderella's slipper--and the discovery of a riddle in the sacred grove of ruins behind grandmother's house.

This is stunning .. a magical journey back to an earlier time when magic and "reality" really did coexist. It's a young boy's search for the answer to a puzzle ... a garden of stone with a doorway hidden within the puzzle .. and the garden .. that leads to another world. Highly recommend ...
