The enchantment of a secret garden in which time dissolves like English mist permeates this lyrical story of young Tom's nightly return to Victorian days, to Hatty, and to the house of secrets. For as sure as there was a thirteenth hour there was Hatty, the orphan who nightly beckoned to the twentieth century English boy. A lyrical and poignant fantasy reminiscent of Portrait of Jennie and The Secret Garden, this book which has been selected as the British children's book of 1959 contains a great deal of imagination and grace, rarely encountered in recent children's work. Susan Einzig's sensitive black and white illustrations add another dimension to the intense aesthetic appeal of Tom's delicate flight into fancy. (Kirkus Reviews)
