Sam and Harry and their parents inherited a house in the country. But when they get there, it’s a bit of a ruin that needs fixing up.

Sam and Harry start exploring, but Harry finds the house really spooky and starts hearing voices. When they find a strange book in the library, the house entangles them in the past as they time travel back 100 years to when the house was filled with people. Will they be able to solve the riddle of the house and get back to their own time?

This is a fun book for those who like their books a bit creepy, with an element of the unknown. It’s also a great introduction to time slip novels and a bit of historical fiction as well!

A great read for anyone in Year 4 and above.
