Summary

Danny has a new phone and wants to play on it, but his mum sends him upstairs to clear his Great Gran's box room. Great Gran is putting her Victorian terraced house on the market. Danny finds an old photograph of a girl about his age and some small paintings tied in a red ribbon. When he undoes the ribbon, the girl from the photograph appears in the room. 

Her name is Kitty. She asks him to play a game with the pictures, but he is rude to her, saying he'd rather play on his phone. Kitty is offended and whisks him back to 1886, where the paintings are all real people. The game is that he has to find the person to help him unlock time to get back home. 

Danny thinks it will be a doddle, but he meets a girl called Phoebe who steals his phone. In an attempt to get it back, he runs into all kinds of trouble. 

Will he find the person to help unlock time, or will he be stuck in the ghostly time lock for good?

A charming story narrated beautifully

'Time Lock' takes the reader back in time... Danny isn't happy being made to clean up great gran's box room... but finding a set of hand-painted postcards and an intriguing photograph of a young girl in amongst the clutter, he's plummeted back in time and into an amazing adventure...
The characters are charming, funny and well written and the story flows really well. The story is suitable for an eight-year-old, with enough interest to keep a young teen involved.
Julia Eve narrates the story beautifully, allowing the listener to engage with the storyline.
