A mysterious maze
Eleven-year-old Holly Wade and her twin siblings, Judy and Crockett, are sent to live with their grandparents in the small town of Dimsdale, Massachusetts when their father is declared missing in action in Vietnam. Dimsdale is nothing like Boston; there are only two other African-American children in the entire school. Even worse, Grandpa and Grandma Wade live in an old junkyard! While exploring one day, Holly, Judy, and Crockett wander into an overgrown hedge maze—and find themselves transported back in time to Dimsdale’s past. Can they right an ancient wrong and free the town of Dimsdale from a witch’s curse?

Editorial Reviews

EBOOK COMMENTARY

"Norton weaves an ingenious plot."
--Kirkus Reviews
Children's Literature - Sheryl O'Sullivan
A middle-grade fantasy first published in 1974 and recently republished, this book is one of the more than 100 books written by an author honored by the Science Fiction Writers of America as a Grand Master. A good versus evil story that involves time travel through a maze from Vietnam era America to the days of American witch hunts, this book follows the efforts of the three Wade children to combat an ancient curse and save the home and town of their grandparents. In following the maze into the past, the Wades meet both good and bad witches who use incantations to further their causes. The children aid the good witch, and are in turn aided by her. The book also confronts issues of race relations as the African-American Wade children move to the nearly all-white town of their grandparents following the disappearance of the children's father in Vietnam. The themes of fairness, refusing temptation, and working for a common good are also woven into the plot. The dialogue in the book is very convincing, but may be difficult for some children because both the modern-day speeches and the dialogues taking place in the past are written in dialects appropriate to the times and places in which they occur.

Read an Excerpt


Judy moved forward, down the path which led around the pool straight for the house. Holly thought she could see a faint trail of smoke curling upward from that very large chimney. It was plain someone lived here. The garden was very well tended, there were the bees--but who-- And why didn't Grandma know or tell them about this near neighbor?
"I just don't get it." Crock threw his jacket on the ground. "I just don't get it! This is summer, not October! And who--"
Crock was right. It was summer, only Holly refused to admit it. She did not dare think what that might mean. This was a dream, it had to be a dream!
