Ghost Light in the Attic by Pat Thomson


Ghost Light in the Attic by Pat Thomson

When Tom and Bridget come to Bridgeford Hall at first they think it might be haunted. And they are terrified when they see Elinor Bassingbourn step out of a seventeenth-century family portrait. But Elinor needs their help. So Tom and Bridget follow her back into her time to Civil War England, where even within a single family, loyalties are divided. Can the three children help Elinor's brother escape capture?
