On the journey home to see his newborn son, Silas Heap finds a baby girl in the forest. She is all alone, wrapped in blankets. He brings her home, and finds out that his son, Septimus, the seventh son of the seventh son, is pronounced dead. Silas and his wife Sarah decide to raise the baby girl as their own.
Ten years later, they receive a strange visitor who turns their life upside down and raises lots of questions. Who is their daughter? Why is their family not safe? What happened to their son?

Why a Throwback Thursday for Book Reviews?
Those of us who blog about books are a community. We read lots of books, we write lots of reviews, and we share those reviews with fellow book lovers and those in search of books for children and teens on our blogs, websites, and via social media.
We write so many reviews that, over time, they get buried by other, newer reviews. BUT! that book we read three years ago will always be new to some reader, somewhere. So why not share that review with a new audience?
Everyone is welcome! Here are the participation guidelines:
- If you reviewed the same book we’re featuring, add your permalink to the original review on the Reading Tub website or in the InLinkz Linkup.
- Want to (re)share a review you posted in June 2009, then add your permalink in the InLinkz Linkup. [No, it doesn’t have to be a book you loved; but it does have to be a review you take a lot of pride in.]
- Add any notes about the review in the comments, please.
The spammers have been having a blast with our Throwback Thursday posts … now its your turn to take back blogging from those nuiscances. Did you review House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones? Or another book from June 2009? Add it to our linkup above or comments below.
