Publisher's Summary

Max, Leon and Matthew - together at last for Christmas at St Mary's, a time of conspicuous consumption, riotous misbehaviour and the traditional illegal Christmas jump. And this time it's intergenerational.
Donning her unfamiliar mother hat, Max takes Matthew back to 19th-century London, where they plan to deliver a parcel of Christmas cheer to his former friends but find themselves confronting the terrifying Old Ma Scrope in the process.
'Tis the season to be jolly. It's also the season of goodwill towards all mankind.
Pity no-one told Max.

I wish I could give more stars than 5

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. It’s 10pm Christmas Day and the relatives have gone home, the house is clean again, and no one found my stash of cookies. I started this story and fell in love with Max all over again.

Max And Matthew Go On An Outing

At Christmas Max agrees to take Matthew back to see his fellow "Climbing Boys" in the early 1800's London. They plan on a simple stop back in time to provide a nice meal and a couple blankets. Nothing dangerous, nothing that could get them in too much trouble.

But come on, it's Max. She runs into Matthew's old guardian/employer Old Ma Scrope. Non-interference kind of drops by the wayside as mother meets her son's evil ex-guardian.

The story gives some closure to Matthew's time in the past in a nice way when all is said and done. A nice entry in the series.

Probably not quite right for stand-alone reading, unless you are at least familiar with the Chronicles of St. Mary's series.
