Publisher's Summary

It is Charlotte's first night at boarding school. But when she wakes up, the girl in the next bed is not the person who was sleeping there the evening before. And the new building outside her window seems to have metamorphosed into a huge, dark cedar tree! Somehow, Charlotte has slipped back 40 years....

A classic time-travel mystery from acclaimed author Penelope Farmer.

    "Bittersweet story"

    Beautiful reading of a bittersweet timeslip story. As Charlotte sleeps she slips out of her own time and changes places with Clare in 1918. The story builds slowly but Charlotte's plight starts to grip as 1918 begins to become more real to her than her own life and she fights to remain herself. Very well read by Hannah Gordon with nicely done character voices.

    "Lovely little time travel story"

    Lovely book with an interesting time travel story! Set in 1918 and 1948 thankfully the narrator perfectly suits the era! Worth a listen

    "Beautiful book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - I'd recommend it to almost everyone with imagination and heart! It;s a beautiful touching story with lovely vivid characters that stay with you and feel like friends. A lot of mystery too, and the parts about the First World War are quite powerful and moving.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character Charlotte, and Emily. And also Miss Agnes touched me.


    Which character – as performed by Hannah Gordon – was your favourite?

    All the above main characters! Hannah Gordon brought them to life perfectly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several moments really - but can't say without spoilers. The end was moving, but in a good way.


    Any additional comments?

    A truly lovely clever book, perfectly written, for all ages above about 12, I'd say. I'm 60 years old and read it for the first time, and was captivated.

    "Five Stars!!"

    This book is one of my favourite books on audible and I love the story, there are a few parts that didn't really make sense to me but it's still amazing! I would recommend this book to all ages as there is no inappropriate-ness (or very little) and the story is good for children and adults!!! Five Stars!!!!

    "My favorite book as a child"

    I ordered this book off the school scholastic papers in 6th grade back in 1987. I was so fascinated with the story. It is a story that has always stayed with me. What a joy this was to hear it read to me after all these years. It is still as wonderful of a story now at age 40 as it was to me at age 11. Highly recommend!
