Loganberry in the snow Welcome to 2006.

Winter in Cleveland makes me nostalgic for cross-country skiis and hot cider.  But where's the snow?  Well, at least the sidewalks are clear (despite this photo), and we've got some complimentary hot tea and lots of books to browse....  and maps (see below)....

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month
Stump the BooksellerJ65: John Hollis
The book I'm trying to find is one that I read in the mid 1970s when I was approx. 10-12 years old. I used to borrow it from my local library in Wales. I remember 2 main characters, a girl and a boy, both at least in their early teens; I remember the plot centred around a wood/forest/river/pond; the girl I think was troubled; I'm sure the boy was a ghost - but am not certain if this was known throughout the book or revealed at the end; the name of the boy is "John Hollis"   - if I have remembered the name correctly then at the end of the book the girl kept shouting his name in the woods but he didn't appear, possibly because he had previously appeared to her only in times of trouble and now that her trouble was resolved(?) he no longer appeared. I remember it as a bitter-sweet tale, sweet because John Hollis helped the girl in times of trouble, bitter because once the girl was happy again, he disappeared.  Hope you can help! I'd love to read it again.
