Robinsheugh based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Elizabeth Martin is not happy about having to spend the summer at Robinsheugh, an old mansion in the Scottish borderlands, with her scholarly Aunt Kate while her parents tour America. She is quite miserable until she discovers a mysterious looking glass that transports her back to the 18th century. There, she becomes Elizabeth Melville, the daughter of a noble family that lives at Robinsheugh. Elizabeth's time travelling certainly gives her a good diversion from the humdrum of life on the lonely 20th century manor. But is the 18th century all it appears to be? Elizabeth certainly finds out. I first read this book when I was growing up in Sevenoaks, Kent. I've since moved, but I still look at it from time to time. I felt, and still feel, a kind of kinship with Elizabeth, who shares my name. Even though it's out of print, try to find this book. You won't be disappointed!
