Review by

When I first picked this up, many years ago, I discovered that Toby and Alexander and Linnet weren't in the story, and refused to read any further in a rage. However, having moved on a little since those days, I stuck it on my Christmas wishlist and gave it a try. Very similar in tone to ‘The Children of Green Knowe’, this time it's spring, and Tolly spends his Easter holiday learning about a Regency Oldknowe and her freed-slave companion. Unlike the Stuart Oldknowes, the children in this book aren't ghosts; Tolly and they simply pass into one another's times, and even interact and impact on one another. Tolly, incidentally, has managed to grow two years in one term at school, but let that pass. This was adapted in 2009 into a not-entirely-satisfactory film under the title 'From Time to Time'.
