    5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and Thoughtful, November 11, 2010

    This review is from: Whirl of the Wheel (Kindle Edition)
    This time travel tale takes three youngsters back to World War II Britain in a fast moving adventure through time via the motion of a potter's wheel. About to lose their beloved home, Connie and her brother Charlie-Mouse, inadvertently accompanied by their least favorite person, Malcolm, face danger trying to prevent the historic dwelling from being destroyed and find themselves in search of a military secret that could prevent the disaster. Particularly well done are the letters to a mother in war-time London from a daughter separated from her parents, and the strong character of viewpoint Connie, who gets around most of the time in a wheelchair, (treated without sentiment) making a most admirable young heroine. Likable characters, strong sense of place, a well plotted novel that makes a fun and thoughtful read.

    This review is from: Whirl of the Wheel (Kindle Edition)
    For once I think my title actually makes sense to me because I found this story quite surreal. In the beginning you are introduced to the main stars, a girl named Connie and her brother, Charlie-Mouse. 'Charlie-Mouse' is a strange name and it is never fully explained.

    You soon realise that Connie is in a wheelchair. Why? I guess she had a riding accident because of a later reference to horses but that is not explained either. I found it interesting that there is no particular significance given to her because she is in a wheelchair, not even when she meets other children for the first time. That is rather lovely, though perhaps not realistic, but then the story has an odd, dreamlike quality and the people in it are all a little different.

    In the beginning, I found myself turning back pages thinking I had missed a bit. It seemed the change from one scene to the other was very rapid and I didn't quite see how we got there. After a time, once I caught onto... Read more

    5.0 out of 5 stars An enchanting tale well told, November 21, 2010
    This review is from: Whirl of the Wheel (Kindle Edition)
    Catherine Condie's tale of three young people and their time travel adventure from the rural vicar's house at Claybridge, England back in time to World War II and back again using a local potter's wheel as entry point to the past. It's all to save their house from being torn down by a greedy speculator who wants to turn the property into a housing development. But Connie and her brother Charlie Mouse and an accidental traveler who adds a bit of mystery to this enchanting adventure. Very well-written.
