In the background sunflowers and hollyhocks grew, and on either side of the front gate two stout little cedars stood like sentinels on guard. The street upon which this gate opened was wide and shady, and the bustle and din of the city had not yet invaded its quiet ambience.Though in reality the red house had become somewhat rusty and old. The place was called the Brown house, because as far back as anyone in the neighborhood could recall it was originally occupied by an old lady called Ms Brown. For years before she died she was bed-ridden, and to the children there was something mysterious about this person who was never seen, but on whose account they were cautioned not to be noisy while playing. After her death the house was left locked and empty, but hardly any more silent than before. An air of mystery still hung about the place- the children when they passed peeped in at the flowers alone in their glory, and spoke softly as though any louder they could disturb the ghost of Ms Brown...Relive your childhood by following this group of children as they adventure around a neighbors house and garden, put yourself in their world, which probably mirrors your childhood, and just lose yourself in this wonderful adventure of the mysterious Front Door...Written by Sarah Mills, who included her real life experiences as a child to create this novel, at the surprise of her beloved friends. We are sure you can relate to the childhood friendships expressed in this book too.
