Featured Books for 7+ readers Science Fiction

LoveReading View on Children Of Winter

This book will capture your imagination right from the beginning as you go back in time – you’re sure to feel right there with them throughout all their time-travel experiences. By a double Carnegie Medal winning author (I think only three authors have done that in its 70 year history), Berlie Doherty writes with a lightness of touch and tremendous fluidity despite the haunting nature of the story, so I’m confident you’ll more than enjoy this book.Her 1987 Carnegie winning novel Granny was a Buffer Girl is also featured on Lovereading so why not read one of the extracts and decide for yourself whether you enjoy Berlie Doherty's writing style and then you have a choice of reading one or both books. We think you will love it.

Children Of Winter Synopsis

Catherine and her family are out for a walk when a sudden storm blows up, and they are forced to take shelter in a deserted barn which they have never seen before but which seems strangely familiar. The children find that they have slipped back to the time of The Black Death.
