Thirteen-year-old Betony has always hated going to her cranky great-grandmother’s house. It’s old and stuffy and boring and the woodstove in the kitchen is always burning too hot. But her Gram doesn’t have any other family living close by on the Kingston Peninsula, so Betony ends up being dragged along all the time.
She’d rather be pretty much anywhere…until one day Betony sits on her Gram’s fav
ourite chair. She is suddenly transported into the past, and is experiencing her Gram’s life as if it were in her own memory. At first Betony is excited and curious, and begins to develop a close relationship with Gram, even learning to cook and quilt.
This was a fast but sweet and great read.
I liked the idea of experiencing your family history as it was your own.
But of course not everything was so great, there were a few things Betony learned that were less pleasant.
The book was well written and took you straight into Betony’s and her family’s world and you can’t help to see it as she does.
It was very easy to read and follow and it a great book for all ages.
The Characters were easy to relate to and likable.
Overall, it was a great read and I rate it at 4 ★
