Evie’s been sent to live with her godmother. There’s no food in the flat and she’s broken her phone on the way. The prospect of staying with Annie isn’t inviting at all – but on the first night, she’s visited by a ghostly figure at the window.
The girl is Sophia Fane, who was imprisoned in the very room where Evie is staying. When the clock strikes midnight, Evie’s transported to the very week that Sophia’s tragic story occurs - and she’s got just a few days to stop it happening again.
Helen Peters, author of the fabulous The Secret Hen House Theatre, swaps farm life for an historical adventure story in her latest novel for older children. It’s factual but lots of fun, and the race to save Sophia will keep readers turning pages into the night.
