I love the way this author tells a children's story! It has the feel of a fairy tale, but using time travel as a means to connect a girl living in the 1930's Chelsea, England with the 16th century Tudor period. The book itself was published in 1939 and the author was one of J. R. R. Tolkien's favorites:) And since everyone who loves stories of this sort likes to compare them to Narnia, I would say that C.S. Lewis took some inspiration from Ms. Uttley's, much earlier book:)
A group of siblings visit their aunt and uncle in a country farmhouse for a time and Penelope, who is a dreamer, finds herself traveling through time and connecting with the people who used to live in this place in the 1500's... It so happens that they were supporters of the exiled Queen Mary, and were involved in an attempt to free her from her house imprisonment. Penelope wants to warn them and desperately wishes she could change their faiths, but she learns that history is very stubborn and doesn't allow meddling with it.
I have very fond memories of the first time reading this book. I have always been a devoted fan of children's tales, Fantasy of any kind and history. This is a gentle mixture of all of them, very accessible to children and as it did in my case, makes you want to learn more about the Tudor period and the whole line of Tudors as a whole. I can honestly say that this was the first book that made me want to read more about British History, since that was not a point of great educational focus for the Bulgarian School curriculum.
Overall, I think this is a wonderful read for young people and a very gentle tale. May awaken their historical curiosity as it did mine.
