<i>The Ocean at the End of the Lane</i> by Neil Gaiman

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

 
Book Discussion: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Summary: In Sussex, England, a man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl and her mother and grandmother. He hasn’t thought of them in decades, and yet, as he sits by the pond (a pond the girl had claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse, the past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.
