Book Excerpt: 
. . .About half-an-hour afterwards the conveyance which was to take Captain Arrows from Summer Villa was driven up to the door. Emmie was ready, as arranged, to accompany her uncle part of the way. John handed up his luggage to be disposed of on the coach-box. Vibert came to the door to see the guest depart and bid him farewell. “I’ll show him,” said the youth to himself, “that I bear him no grudge for a warning that was not very necessary, and certainly not very polite.”

“Good-bye, captain,” cried Vibert, as he shook hands with his uncle; “come to Myst Court next spring, and you and I will make a raid on the haunted chamber.”

“Where is Bruce? I have not wished him good-bye,” said the captain, pausing when he was about to hand his niece into the carriage.

I listened to the Lamplighter version of this story. While I appreciated the moral points in the book (Which were very relatable), it felt almost like too much of a moral story. I got a little bogged down in everyone's problems and then was a bit disappointed at how quickly they overcame them. I'...more

This was an amazing, Christian novel. Despite its title, it was not a horror story, or fantasy in the least.

I love mystery stories, and while this wasn't a typical mystery, I loved the message at the heart of this book, as well as the elements of surprise thrown in. A great reminder to continually guard and examine what is in our own "haunted rooms"- the depths of our hearts.

I found this book at a Lamplighter table at a Homeschool convention. While I heartily approve of their goal of republishing old, forgotten classics, it's hard to spend $17 on an unknown novel that I Probably will forget about long before I get my kids to read it. So I did a little digging and fou...more

The Trevor family, consisting of Mr. Trevor, Bruce, Emmie, and Vibert, must move to a new house called Myst Manor, which has a nefarious reputation.

Really enjoyed the Lamplighter production of this story! I like Lamplighter, but sometimes it can be too depressing, so much so that the depression overwhelms the story. That, happily, did not occur here.

Fear can keep us from being what God made us to be!

Listened to the Lamplighter Theatre production of this book, and it was excellent!

Excellent!

As usual, the story always seem to mirror what is going on in our life relating to issues we need to work on. We didn't read the book, but listened to the audio drama. We always enjoy listening to the stories in the car.
