Marianne Dreams - Catherine Storr
This powerful and eerie classic about a girl haunted by her own dreams has been made into a TV series and a feature film.

The boy at the window is called Mark, and his every movement is guarded by the menacing stone watchers that surround the solitary house.

That is, until Uncle Fred decides to go after the fox - will Tom save her and her family in time?
