OMG! I just discoverd a great book!
The China Garden is about this girl who moves to this famous countryside estate with her Mum in England. Her mum is a nurse who is going to take care of this old guy. The girl (Clare) wasn't supposed to come, but something was drawing her to it. As time goes on, she learns this quirky little saying the creepy village people have: Let Ravensmear die, let the land be torn open, the end of the world is surely bestokened. She also learns that there is something called the Benison that needs guarding and every Kenward marries and Alyward and guards it. Mr. Aylward, the man her mother is taking care of, just happens to be the last guardian. he has no son and there is not Kenward heir, either. But soon Clare learns that her mother was a Kenward before something terrible happened that changed everyone's lives forever....

That sounds really good! I love mysterious stories that have a bit of intrigue and that sort of thing. It almost reminds me of the novel Wendy, by Karen Wallace and based on the world of Peter Pan. It's excellent.

PS Please look at my thread in Long Term Writing - I really need help.
