Ah, Tracy, you're right, I didn't, I'm so sorry, seriously tacky of me.
: Once the thread moved, I forgot about it and then didn't check it until now! Unfortunately, I don't think that's it...I am certain that the main character was a girl (and Tolly in the GK book is a boy), and upon reading more about the Green Knowe book, it appears it was part of a series, and I am also certain that it was a stand-alone novel. I remember it being slightly scary, but not creepy, and there was a beautiful, melancholy air about the book that kept it from being scary, or funny, I just remember it being somber and fascinating and really beautiful. I know that sounds dorky, but that's why it's stayed with me, and no amount of googling these keywords I'm coming up with has helped me find it.
ETA: Okay, so I did some more reading, and the title of the book just sounded soooo familiar, and you know what? I think it just might be the book after all. I just went to the library, but they don't have it (what?!) and I'm getting it on ILL, so I'll know in 2-3 weeks if that's the one I remember. I have a feeling that's just what's going to happen...so apparently, my "very certain" means that "I have no idea". THANK YOU! I'll let you know when it comes in if you scored a homer.
