A new edition of the much-loved classic story of time travel, ghosts and friendship. Even before she came to Belton, Minty Cane had known that she was a witch, or something very like it . .

. Minty is the kind of girl who notices things. Pockets of cold air on a stairway.

Cries on the wind. Ghosts. On night-time jaunts from the house where she’s staying while her mother recovers from an accident, Minty stumbles upon a moondial which takes her back in time.

She finds Tom, a sickly kitchen boy, and Sarah, a girl with a birthmark who is only allowed out at night because her family think she has the mark of the devil . . .

Can Minty save her friends, or will she get stuck in the past . . .?’Fresh and entertaining.’ Publishers Weekly’Carefully wrought and evanescent as a ghost story should be, this will be enjoyed by any admirer of Tom’s Midnight Garden.’ Kirkus
