This book is a ghost story, a bit different for the author, I think. It's about a 13-year-old girl's acquaintance with a ghost at a run-down Manor in rural England. It's beautifully told, amazingly evoking the mind of teenage girl who can see the supernatural, albeit ghosts or the mythical creatures that inhabit the rural English countryside. The narrator is the girl, Jenny, retelling her moving from New York to Dorset because of her mother's remarriage and evolution from despising it to loving it. I was astounded by how much I loved the book, despite being a little YA-ish. It won the 2000 Mythopoeic Award and was nominated for several others.
