Two centuries, two children, one house

Beth didn’t want to move to Dublin – she misses her old life and her friends back in London. New home and new school is hard enough, but to make matters worse someone keeps messing up her room … At first, Beth blames her annoying brother, Cormac, but when she discovers a boy called Robbie, from the 1950's, is slipping through time and into her room, then things start to get REALLY weird!

The two create havoc together, learn about each other’s worlds and manage to help each other when they’re down. But the 1950s and the present day sometimes seem very far apart … Can their friendship stand the test of time?

A mischief-maker from the 1950’s – a shy girl from today and a time-slip adventure like no other

a modern, fun and informative take on the time travel trope with interesting characters who allow the reader to realise the importance of celebrating family … a wonderful addition to a school library

InTouch Magazine

just the kind of book that its’ protagonist Beth would love – “an up-to-date novel about a girl having a horrible time at a new school” – while also offering readers something else: a time-travelling, mind-bending domestic fantasy … Family conflict and peer pressure are represented realistically, but it is the historical slippage that makes The House on Hawthorn Road a truly compelling read’
