Greenglass House, an inn owned by The Pines, is usually very quiet during the winter. It is off season and Milo, The Pines' adopted son, is ready for a break. Unfortunately, the inn suddenly floods with guests and The Pines have to ask one of their employees to come back and help. Mrs. Caraway brings her daughters with her and they all set out to keep the inn running during the winter. One of the daughters, Meddy is the same age as Milo, so the two of them become friends. They begin playing this role playing game and taking on different characters to help solve mysteries and possibly find treasure. Each character accents things that the children would rather be. For instance, Milo's character is brave and bold, whereas Milo has some anxiety issues and is rather meek. These personas add an element to each character which allows more of the inn's history, the guests inside, and the treasure to be explored.
This is a multi-layered story that has fabulous main and side characters. Milford has managed to bring to life Milo and Meddy in two different ways. First, they are both children that are learning about themselves, their history, and their growing friendship. There is no romance, but the two definitely need one another. Their role-playing personas are also fully defined. Those give an extra layer to each child. We find their insecurities and ways they learn to deal with it. On top of that, it reminded me of times when I pretended to have an imaginary friend to get into mischief with. Finally, all of the guests within the inn have a very important part of play in unveiling the overall mystery. They also have their own kooky personalities which are interesting to read through. As well as Milford's wonderful characters, she also builds a world that makes you feel like you are there. The Greenglass House is revealed to the reader first as a view of the inn. We see the inside and outside and are able to picture the rooms and the fascinating glass, but as we move through the story, we also see more layers of the Greenglass House. It's almost as if the setting becomes a character. While the history is a mystery that the characters slowly figure out, it is also revealing more of the character of the House. It's definitely interesting and entertaining. I think I should look up some more Milford books.
A tangled suspenseful tale that unravels one character at a time to reveal a story bigger than them all!
