Summary
In this spine-tingling chiller, Rose anticipates her summer trip with Mrs. Zimmermann will be a dangerous adventure, but suspects nothing when they drive through a tunnel into the snowbound winter of 1828. Mrs. Zimmermann has returned to the past to regain her magical powers, but she loses her memory, leaving them stranded in time.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 5-7. Bellairs' latest scary thriller features 14-year-old Rose Rita Pottinger and good witch Mrs. Zimmermann, who were last seen in The Letter, the Witch, and the Ring (1976). Spurred on by a mirrored vision of her mentor, Mrs. Zimmermann, accompanied by Rose Rita, travels to Pennsylvania in hopes of regaining her lost magical powers. While driving through a tunnel, the two are mysteriously transported back in time to 1828, where they meet the Weiss family. The travelers must stop an evil sorcerer before he destroys the Weisses and steals a treasure buried on their farm. Although completed by Strickland after Bellairs' death, the story has not suffered. Careful plotting, fascinating details about the nineteenth-century Pennsylvania Dutch, and gripping suspense (several scenes, especially one in which Rose Rita appears trapped in a cemetery full of emerging corpses, ought not to be read alone late at night) make this one of Bellairs' best. Fans also will be pleased that several more novels await completion. (Reviewed FEb. 15, 1993)0803713703Kay Weisman"
