Item Description...
Overview
Location: Europe, England Time Period: Modern Era (1700-1950 A.D.) England 1940s This is an adventurous story with a difference-it is soon after World War II, but Cecil (short for Cecilia) and her cousin, Rickie, are thrown into a series of adventures that have little to do with the England that they know. Inexplicably, they, and sometimes their eccentric and interesting tutor, Dominic, find themselves in another time-usually right in the middle of a dramatic, if not harrowing, moment. Every dip into time takes them farther back and each time they experience another chapter of the Church's history and teachings. At once fun and frightening, these escapades into the past take on deeper and deeper significance. Each of these three-Cecil, Rickie, Dominic-are faced with things from their own pasts which touch deeply upon who they are in the present and who they will choose to be in the uncertain but tantalizing future. They have much to sort out, as history-especially the history of the Christian Faith.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Historical Fantasy of English Catholicism  May 12, 2006
A while back--say, a dozen or so generations ago--England was Europe's most fervently Catholic country; and it took many decades of bribing and bullying and grotesque torture before most of the English people finally slipped their moorings. There were a few holdouts, of course, old families that held onto the Faith and maintained a sense of history that most of their compatriots had forgotten. And that is the background premise to this tale. Through the convenient magic of time-travel, some children visit the England or Britain of ages ago, episodically, beginning with Bath Spa in the days of the Romans, and culminating with the great age of anti-Catholicism in the 1680s. For the orphan boy in the center of the tale, it is a journey of self-discovery. He finds out who he is by finding where his country came from.

I am pleasantly surprised to find that this book is back in print. I was lent an old copy of the original English edition when I was little and spent years afterwards trying to locate a vintage copy. When I finally did, I found that I'd completely forgotten that Edward Ardizzone (a name I knew well) had done the illustrations.
 
Time Travel Fun in Merry Olde England  Aug 9, 2004
This is a delightful read - particularly for the pre-teen set - about two children who travel back through different parts of history all set in and around the town of Bristol, England. The story is quite engaging (my 11 year old daughter LOVED it!) and is conceptually interesting as well. Each visit to the past brings the characters farther back in time and presents a piece of the puzzle they're putting together in their heads - a bit of the sense of perspective that history gives us, the struggles that are dealt with in every age, and the importance of faith and perserverance.

I also enjoyed the little details present in the story - like how the children are called by their own names by "relatives" in each era, but their names and the names around them are believably related to the time-period. Costumes and manner of speech are attended to quite nicely as well. The story is set in the 1950s and the time travel sequences eventually take the characters all the way back to Roman Britain.
