Django Maximoff crafted a doll in Wanda's image fatefully using wood from Wundagore imbued with some of Chthon's own power , and it acted as a conduit for Wanda's soul.
She regained her body while Chthon was trapped in the doll. Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch then buried the doll in an avalanche, leaving Chthon in his dimension once more. Chthon had several plans working at once to ensure his rebirth, however. Vittorio Montesi was the latest in a long line of Montesi priests employed by the Vatican to guard against the rise of Chthon and the influence of the Darkhold.
The Montesis even had special dispensation from the Vatican to marry and sire heirs, keeping their bloodline active against the forces of evil. Vittorio was sterile, however, and felt pressure to continue his family line, so he gave in to temptation and used the Darkhold to impregnate his wife. The misogynistic Vittorio thought Chthon had made sport of him when his child turned out to be a daughter, not a son like he wanted.
Worse, Victoria Montesi was a lesbian, something the old-world Vittorio considered an abomination.
Little did he realize this was the least of Chthon's actions. As an adult, Victoria came to lead a team of " Darkhold Redeemers ", fighting the proliferation of Darkhold spells being disseminated in the world.
In time, however, they learned that Victoria was actually the child of Chthon, not Vittorio, and the Elder God impregnated her in order to be reborn on the Earthly plane. Chthon resurfaced and killed the New Men at Mt. Wundagore, with no Doctor Strange to counter this new threat. Knowing about Chthon's activities, and how they had taken down most superheroes, Loki , disguised as the Scarlet Witch, helped to reform the Mighty Avengers to combat him.
However, Modred successfully summoned Chthon into the body of Quicksilver and Chthon arrived, claiming that this reality would fall before him in a blink of an eye. Ant-Man used his ants to scramble Quicksilver's nerve signals, rendering him unable to remember any spells. After a goading from "Wanda" about the destruction of his world, Bruce Banner transformed into the Hulk and pounded the Chthon possessed Quicksilver, while Hank Pym spoke encouraging words to those present, reducing their belief in the Elder God's strength, weakening him further.
Though Chthon managed to blast Hulk off, his host body was severely damaged and now unable to contain his power, so he left Quicksilver's body and entered Modred's body, but at the same time, Vision read one of the spells from the Darkhold, imprisoning the Elder God within the tome, thereby averting the threat.
A new member of the Darkholders, Barry Gleason , attempted to enact a ritual to resurrect Chthon using the symbiote -empowered serial killer Carnage , who he believed to be the subject of a prophecy in the Darkhold: "When the Red Slayer spills blood on sacred stone, he who sleeps shale wake and what walked once will walk again.
Carnage was able to awaken Chthon,  who manifested as a blue-skinned eldritch monster and began devouring the Broodlings present. When Carnage demanded to be rewarded, Chthon casually swatted him aside and began summoning the other evil gods. However, he was confronted by Jubulile van Scotter who used the combined power of her own Darkhold-augmented symbiote, the Darkhold-augmented Raze symbiote , and the Toxin symbiote to face him in combat and ultimately banish him.
Chthon is one of the most powerful Elder Gods of Earth, who has degenerated into a demonic state. He has the vast ability to manipulate magical energies for a variety of effects.
He has manifested himself in humanoid form, but can take various forms; his true form, if he has one, has not been revealed. This magic can manipulate, warp and reconstruct the very fabric of existence and reality to the user's very whims and bring about total destruction to the cosmos. Other-realm Control: In the dimension he has created for himself he controls every aspect of reality.
Telepathy: This ability enables him to read, control, and communicate with the minds of others, even across dimensional barriers. Mystic Patron: He can also send his power out of that dimension when invoked to do so by a spellcaster, though when this is done the spellcaster's soul is forfeit to the Elder God. Other Connection: Until Chthon finds a way to truly free himself from his other-dimensional realm, he can operate on Earth through his elemental host, known as the Other, which is summoned when someone uses the Darkhold.
The Other can manifest itself in any appearance it wants, but its actions on the Earthly sphere are generally limited by the demands of the user of the Darkhold. If the proper rituals are performed, Chthon can also take over mortal host-bodies on Earth, but he can not easily transfer all of his totality to these forms, and often even the fraction he can is too much for the form to contain.
Demonic Possession: If the proper rituals are performed, Chthon can also take over mortal host-bodies on Earth, but he can not easily transfer all of his totality to these forms, and often even the fraction he can is too much for the form to contain. Genius Intelligence . Chthon has an extraordinary knowledge of the dark mystical forces of the cosmos, and cataloged the evil spells of the demonic Elder Gods of Earth in the Darkhold. He is the original author of the Darkhold, an indestructible collection of evil mystical knowledge and spells that he intended to serve as the medium through which he could return to Earth.
The Darkhold can apparently change its form, since Chthon created it millions of years before the rise of humanity, to whom it appeared as a set of scrolls with human writing upon them. Most people who use the Darkhold's spells fall under Chthon's mental control as a result. Only humans with great spiritual strength or aided by great mystical expertise , like Doctor Strange and the members of the Montesi family can successfully resist this mental enslavement. Mordred also seemed to believe that use of the Darkhold would grant him sufficient strength to challenge Merlin himself.
Dimensional Entrapment: Without the Darkhold, Chthon is unable to move freely through dimensions and is trapped in his own because it would take an enormous mystical rift to convey the immense mystical power of the Elder God. Moreover, Gaea has erected magical screens, reinforced over millennia by hundreds of human sorcerers, which prevent him from traveling to Earth unless he undertakes highly elaborate preparations.
Dependency on Extra-dimensional Living Vessel: As shown during several of Chthon's summonings on Earth, though the occupation of a human would enable Chthon to share the human's abilities, he would also be left more vulnerable, in both mind and body, even magically augmented. For example, it is through a physical mind that a human processes information and which a human mystic can utter incantations and thus cast spells to work magic; if the physical mind or its processes were somehow disrupted, even through non-mystical means, Chthon would be temporarily deprived of spell-casting ability.
Eldritch Magic: Chthon and those augmented by his power are vulnerable to eldritch magic, including that of the Darkhold itself.

Is there some kind of windowseat with old curtains that she curls up in and reads while she looks out over the delapidated yard?
Edwards, Julie, Mandy. I think she wrote it for her daughter. I just unpacked my copy from childhood books. Mandy the orphan finds a deserted cottage in the woods with one room covered in seashells all over the walls and ceiling. She fixes up the house and restores the neglected garden, and ultimately is adopted by the family who owns the land and cottage.

It's a wonderful story. This fits the description, but I seem to recall from another stumper here or elsewhere that there was another book with a similiar theme. Worth taking a look at Mandy, though. Mandy is rescued from her cottage when she falls ill, and eventually is adopted by the family whose estate it's on.
From the flyleaf: "For ten-year-old Mandy, the old stone orphanage on the outskirts of the pretty village was the only home she remembered Then one day, when Mandy climbed over the high orphanage wall to explore, there it was--a tiny deserted cottage in a clearing in the woods.

Perhaps not the most comprehensible sentence, but it contains nine examples of Shakespeare's inventiveness! This entertaining picture book gives examples of Shakespeare's neologisms, explains what they mean, which play they were first used in, and fits them into text that tells a parallel story of Shakespeare's times. Ages Lindy Jones A celebration of the words, phrases, and idioms that Shakespeare invented and the contributions he made to the modern-day English lexicon.
Will's words pop up all over the place! It cleverly counterpoints two different stories, one now and one in the not-so-distant past. First is the story of little Maggie who is with her Mum to witness the happenings on a special day, who manages to get lost and found again! The other story is of a peaceful community shattered by the arrival of men who take the children away. Evocative illustrations, and good information at the back of the book to put the stories into context. Lindy Jones There was a hum of excitement. Maggie holds tight to her mother as they await the long anticipated apology to show a willingness to reconcile the past for future generations.
But the faces and memories of the stolen generation are all around them. Her broken verse imitates the cracking dryness that turns a green land brown, and his graphite and acrylic wash illustrations render the patterns and harshness both realistically and sympathetically. As with the others in the series, this is a way of introducing children to the realities of the land we live upon, while also celebrating resilience and the knowledge that good days come again.
Lindy Jones I remember when rain stopped, When day by day the water dropped, All across a sun-bleached land, Drought spread its withered, deadly hand.
