This sweet and gentle story is not your typical fantasy. There is no suspense or violence in Bess's world, which makes great reading for children and readers who want a quiet, comfort story devoid of bad language. Bess even crosses her fingers behind her back when she lies. Author Yvonne Pont does a superb job of making the reader feel that Bess really has gone back in time. The attention to detail of life in 1847 is terrific. She even introduces Charles Dickens into the story, which adds a lovely aspect.
Author Yvonne Pont has created a world where nothing truly awful happens, and couldn't we all use that from time to time? Given that this book was written for a specific audience, I'm keeping that audience in mind as I give the book 4 stars. Pick it up and read it to your children next Christmas. I'm sure they'll love the journey to a truly old-fashioned English Christmas.
