Get ready for an adventure with Ruby and Alex Pilgrim, siblings who journey through a magical mirror at their Aunt Joanna’s B&B to past times where awaiting them always is a wrong to be righted.
Flung this time to a cold day in Christmas 1872, Ruby and Alex soon realise their mission is to come together with their rowdy Victorian Pilgrim cousins, Aunt Marian and her husband Dr. Pilgrim, and their dog Bunyan, to save cousin Edith from a looming lonely life. Edith’s stern father Elijah must be convinced not to send Edith away on Boxing Day to the notorious boarding school ‘Scotsborough’.
Through a flowing tale, details of the world of a Victorian Christmas are revealed. This heart-warming story wraps the reader in bygone yuletide traditions as we experience Christmas with the Pilgrims of 1872, complete with stockings, a cooked goose, old games, holly and ivy and gas lamps galore! A Christmas in Time serves as a lesson to us all that by working together, trusting, and having fun along the way, a kind collective can achieve great things for others, especially at Christmas time.
