Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. The past comes alive for Rosie when she finds herself transported back to the time of the Tudors and to the court of Queen Elizabeth I herself. Rosie finds herself playing an important role in keeping great Queen Bess safe as the Spanish Armada approaches. From her new companions Rosie learns first hand all about the history of the time; how ordinary people lived and what frightened them as well as the big political issues. History at school will never be so difficult for Rose – even though she finds reading so hard!

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.”

About the Author

Anne Perry

Author of the William Monk and Thomas Pitt series of novels, Anne Perry is one of the Times' '100 Masters of Crime' and has over 25 million books in print worldwide. She won an 'Edgar' award for her story, Heroes in 2007. She lives in Portahomack, Ross-shire.

Anne on writing dyslexia friendly time-travel series, Timepiece, which follows a troubled young woman who finds a series of very special timepieces:

“I first thought of writing these stories when I was told how many people, especially the young, do not have the information and the fun that I have in reading. The companionship is boundless for adventure, laughter, the dreams and experiences of every other human being who has put their thoughts on paper.

“More than that, I was angry and distressed that anyone should be shut out of this great community, feel alone, not good enough and without the words to express themselves.

“I chose history because everyone should feel included, no their roots and catch a small site of the courage and selflessness of the heroes of the past, and know that it belongs to them as much as to everyone else.”
