The characters are superbly created. I travelled into that secondary dream-world, seeing all things as if brightly illuminated walking in fields and woods dazzling in their clarity of atmosphere. Penelope Thacker is a bit fey as apparently all the Penelopes in the Thacker family and she begins to experience things from the past but try as she might, she canno You'll probably notice the different spelling. This was the closet where Mistress Babington kept her dried herbs and unguents, but she called it the 'still-room'. The time slip is done so artfully. Sound and Art: This movie from 1986 don't has to hide from a lot of contemporary animated movies. I would have absolutely loved this one when I was a kid, and I still enjoyed it quite a bit now.

As the title implies, the novel is a time travel story but the time travel is a method for uniting the present 1934 with a wonderfully told historical fiction set around the Babington Plot. After a while I considered that maybe it was a magical book that had appeared only for me to read and then vanished in the mists of time, having left me with a lasting love for the past and for England. What happens to the physical body during a time slip? I would have liked to have had this explored a little more. The book itself was published in 1939 and the author was one of J. Actually, it is the common world as people experienced it before the Industrial Revolution -- when most never travelled farther than a day's walk from home.

God I pray to prosper thee; For I am still thy lover true, Come once again and love me. We fo We really loved this book. The book tells the story of Penelope Taberner, a sensitive girl who goes to spend time with relatives at Thackers Farm in Derbyshire. I felt like I was there, both in early 20th century England and In 16th century England. Over several years of visits to the house, as Penelope is growing up, she travels back to a specific time in the life of the house, a time when the Babingtons owned the house and Penelope's ancestors were servants there. And why I write it too. Obviously the narrator is writing about a beloved house that she knows well.

This isn't a story, it's a gateway into another world. I would adore living there. I felt like I had gone time travelling myself and wandered into an Elizabethan era farm in Derbyshire. She becomes part of their family, in the 16th century, accepted as a sort of cousin who nobody can quite place and who tends to vanish without notice. Penelope wants to warn them and desperately wishes she could change their faiths, but she learns that history is very stubborn and doesn't allow meddling with it. They make brief stops durring the fire bombing of Tokyo, the Meiji Revolution and the battle of Sekigahara to escape the Time Patrol agent sent to hunt them down. The moment they are approved we approve submissions twice a day.

Horrible ugly buildings took its place but happily, they are now excavating this historic site. However this is still a very poignant book about loyalties, family, and attachments to homes and history and how memories of people live on. Penelope Thacker is a bit fey as apparently all the Penelopes in the Thacker family and she begins to experience things from the past but try as she might, she cannot change them. As she continually visits the past, she comes to love the Babingtons and their servants. The time travel angle didn't work as well as in some books I have read and felt that the time traveller, Penelope Taberner, repeatedly appearing in the 16th century and then disappearing back The story is based on Mary Queen of Scots and the Babington plot to help her escape from captivity under the rule of Elizabeth I.

I grew almost wistful for the world of Thackers myself, it seemed so ideal. After a while I considered that maybe it was a magical book that had appeared only for me to read and then vanished in the mists of time, having left me with a lasting love for the past and for England. But, rather than dwell on the isolation, frustration suffocation etc etc that industrial people tend to imagine that world would be like, Uttley finds deep roots and full-throated pleasures, a society where, for example, girls sing rounds together at their work without self-consciousness. They have a vivid reality and one will not forget Aunt Tissy {nor her 16th century counterpart}, Uncle Barnabas her sister Allison and the host of other characters in the two time periods. She provides a great deal of loving detail about how meals were cooked and clothes washed and hay harvested in 1582.

It so happens that they were supporters of the exiled Queen Mary, and were involved in an attempt to free her from her house imprisonment. For the past several days, I would look forward to retreating to bed early, entering the world of Penelope Taberner Cameron. The air was strong with the extraordinary mixture of pungent odours, which took away my breath when I lifted the latch of the fast-shut door. Alison Uttley fills the world of the Thacker Manor with the mundane details of running a home and farm along with the big events surrounding the imprisoning of Mary Stuart. Penelope knows about his terrible end, but she although she tries to warn him, only a few people in the household understand that she is from the future. Penelope visits her aunt and uncle at Thackers Manor and finds herself stepping back and forth in time, visiting relatives and residents of the place from three hundred years before, and taking part in helping Mary Queen of Scots try to escape her imprisonment. Fey narrator Penelope Taberner summers at Thackers Farm in both 1930s and 1580s.

I've read this book so many times and still find it beautiful and utterly believable: you can smell the herbs in the linen chests, hear the singing, feel the breeze on your face. Then a student in one of I've been looking for this book for over 50 years. The eldest Babington son, Anthony, is deeply involved in a plot to spirit Mary, Queen of Scots out of England to France. Penelope's ancestors were servants to the Babingtons, who are fundamentally nice people with a few exceptions. The author's strengths lay in her descriptive powers of nature and the seasons, as well as her descriptions of the life and joys of people at this time, before industrialization. I'm so glad I got the version with illustrations by Faith Jaques, which are so evocative. I have always been a devoted fan of children's tales, Fantasy of any kind and history.

The time travel angle didn't work as well as in some books I have read and felt that the time traveller, Penelope Taberner, repeatedly appearing in the 16th century and then disappearing back to her own time, was a little clumsy at first, but it became more natural. She becomes part of their family, in the 16th century, accepted as a sort of cousin who nobody can quite place and who tends to vanish without notice This is one of the best books I have ever read. I also felt badly about Francis. I have very fond memories of the first time reading this book. I liked Penelope too, her Aunt and Uncle, and Francis Babington. As Penelope begins to live half her life in the past she learns how to live in the 1580s. Too bad, because this fits solidly within the Chronicles of Narnia magic-and-boarding-school-England genre and I would have read the covers off of it as a kid! I've been looking for this book for over 50 years.

And while the pace of A Traveller in Time is indeed rather slow and descriptive, this is to and for me precisely what has always made this novel such a constant and perennial favourite although if a potential reader really does need and require constant action and adventure, then A Traveller in Time would likely not be that good a choice or that successful a reading fit. There's real warmth in the relationships and a nostalgia for the past and the rapidly changing present. As an adult, I loved the story, but also appreciated the rich, evocative language and the dream-like, wistful style of writing. I especially liked the historic characters acting like they should. May awaken their historical curiosity as it did mine. .
