Publisher's Summary

It is Charlotte's first night at boarding school. But when she wakes up, the girl in the next bed is not the person who was sleeping there the evening before. And the new building outside her window seems to have metamorphosed into a huge, dark cedar tree! Somehow, Charlotte has slipped back 40 years....
A classic time-travel mystery from acclaimed author Penelope Farmer.

My favorite book as a child

I ordered this book off the school scholastic papers in 6th grade back in 1987. I was so fascinated with the story. It is a story that has always stayed with me. What a joy this was to hear it read to me after all these years. It is still as wonderful of a story now at age 40 as it was to me at age 11. Highly recommend!

Bittersweet story

Beautiful reading of a bittersweet timeslip story. As Charlotte sleeps she slips out of her own time and changes places with Clare in 1918. The story builds slowly but Charlotte's plight starts to grip as 1918 begins to become more real to her than her own life and she fights to remain herself. Very well read by Hannah Gordon with nicely done character voices.

Lovely little time travel story

Lovely book with an interesting time travel story! Set in 1918 and 1948 thankfully the narrator perfectly suits the era! Worth a listen
