A Traveller in Time by Alison Uttley, Astercote by Penelope Lively, and later Green Darkness and The House on the Strand. When I discovered Ferney by James Long I was blown away.
I wonder what it is about the time slip novel that so intrigues me. Beneath the pleasure of reading about history there is something more – perhaps the idea that I, too, would love to step through a portal into another world and see with my own eyes what life was really like in the past. There is a magic about it.
Today on her blog, Midi Berry interviews me about House of Shadows and it seems a good opportunity to mention her lovely time slip book Nights of the Road which draws on the history of Frances Coke, another fascinating 17th century character whom I came across when researching Ashdown House and its history.
So that is my recommendation – Do you have any time slip suggestions for me?
