Summary

When Penelope goes to stay with her aunt and uncle in an ancient Derbyshire farmhouse, she is immediately drawn to the wonderful atmosphere and longs to discover all its secrets. Soon she finds herself slipping back in time to the sixteenth century, where she is welcomed by the Babbington family, whose home it was then.

As the lines between past and present blur, Penelope becomes caught up in the tragic events that befall her new friends as they make plans to rescue the doomed monarch, Mary, Queen of Scots.

Wonderful

I am an adult and thoroughly enjoyed this. If you did to and love Tudor history, read le temps viendra - the time will come- Anne Boleyn.

My favourite childhood book

Beautifully read but sadly not complete, slightly adapted. Still a great listen or read. A lovely tale beautifully written.
