Summary

June, 1905.

Helena and her parrot, Orbit, are swept off to Cambridge when her father is appointed clock-winder to one of the wealthiest men in England. There is only one rule: the clocks must never stop.

But Helena discovers the house of one hundred clocks holds many mysteries: a ghostly figure, strange notes and disappearing winding keys....

Can she work out its secrets before time runs out?

Ideal for readers who enjoyed books like Journey to the River Sea or Tom’s Midnight Garden.

On the search for books to recommend to my class of year 5 and 6 pupils, I listened to this book. The performance was great, the story well crafted, if a little predictable. I think good readers in year 4 and older readers in y5 and y6 who enjoy period stories like Journey to the River Sea and Tom’s Midnight Garden will enjoy this. I think girls might enjoy it more as the central character is a girl and an important backdrop to the story is the issue of gender inequality of opportunity in Victorian/Edwardian eras.
