this is my summery: Moon window is about JoEllen (Jo) a girl from Cambridge who has lived alone with her mother since her father¿s death. Jo and her mom are very close. However, one day her mother meets a handsome, nice, and possibly perfect man for her. Soon after they begin to date, they marry. Well on there honeymoon, Jo stays at Winterbloom with her `granty¿, a nice women with a secret, hidden even from herself. Jo decides to run away. She finds a small room in the attack with a beautiful window perfect for escaping. A moon window as her mother calls it. That night Jo climbs though the window and leaves Winterbloom. Something is off. The roads are no longer paved, and there is a church being built when she knows that just the other day there was a road there. She returns to the house and goes back in though the moon window. The next day she decides to go though the it again. While perched in a tree she watches her `Grantys¿ past. She feels like it is a dream until the child form of her `Granty¿ (JoEllen or Nell) invites her into the house. They travel into the past and meet there relatives (the other Ellen¿s) on an odd and scary adventure only to think that it is a dream. Jo decides not to go back to the past for a while. Meanwhile, her `Granty¿ is getting suspicious and realizes that Jo is the girl from the past. What well happen to Jo? Is it all a dream or are they really going back and forth though time? Is there a hidden room somewhere that her `Granty is hiding¿? If so, what is her `Granty¿ hiding there? Read the story as secrets are reviled and nightmares are proved a reality.

I love the book Moon Window! The plot was both original and interesting, the book was very well-written, and it seemed to take you, along with Joellen, to another world (which is what good books are suppose to do!) If you have not read Moon Window, I highly recommend that you do!
