Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. Second in a brand new time travel series by an award-winning author (the first was Tudor Rose). Will Rosie cope as a nurse in a WW1 Red Cross Hospital?

A deeply moving story with a strong message.
Barrington Stoke MD Mairi Kidd on the Timepiece series, dyslexia friendly books about a troubled young woman who finds a series of very special timepieces. These bring her face to face with some of the most important women in history as they face their own darkest hours:
“There is an increasing awareness of a gap in the market for female dyslexic and struggling readers. Anne Perry is an incredibly well-known author, particularly in libraries and overseas in markets like the USA. We are absolutely delighted that she has written her first Young Adult novels for young women who struggle with reading. Rosie, the title character, struggles too, and we believe that readers will really identify with her.”
