I'm under the spell of this book, I have to say. And if there was ever a book to cast a spell, this is it. The plot is not important, it's a beautiful paean to the pre-industrial world. I need to find out more about Alison Uttley, who is apparently an important children's writer in Britain, but little-known here in the States.

Enjoying this A LOT. Uttley has a talent for atmosphere and setting that I've rarely seen before. Only Penelope Lively's "The Ghost of Thomas Kempe" is on the same level, and indeed that book shares many elements with "Traveller."

Someone suggested in a review that this book could almost function as a meditation on time and seasons. I think that was insightful. There is just enough tension to keep reading, fearful of what WILL happen to the characters, as surely as the audience knows the Titanic WILL strike the iceberg in the movie, but not sure of when or from what direction the blow will come.

last time I read this I think I was 10 years old. I didn't remember that she was so 'fey' and that she visited the past so often.
I had also forgotten how poetic and descriptive the language is.

Old-fashioned. Queen Mary is the most beautiful of women ever. Worshipped. Farm life is idyllic. Erratic kitchen maid accepted equal by gentry? Impossible.

Excellent so far. Hopes are high, but must be kept in check! :)

Please let it stay this good. How could it not?, it seems, but so often it happens.
