Heather | 4 comments A young girl goes back in time and becomes part of another family while she is there. It could have been written in the late 70's early 80's.

Heather | 4 comments No, but it was nice to see some old friends :). I think the girls name may have been Anne.

Holly (hollylovesbooks) | 761 comments Heather, do you remember exactly when you read the book? And do you remember what time period the girl goes back to? Also, is it set in the USA, UK, or somewhere else? Any additional details would help a lot!

Both Sides of Time? Girl is named Annie.

Heather | 4 comments I read it in '83 or '84. It was set in the US and sometime in the 1900's. I'm pretty sure she finds a ruined cabin in the woods and when she enters it, she goes back in time. Thank you Lobstergirl but that's not the one.

A little off-topic, but I totally read that book! I was thinking about making a topic in this group for it, haha. Thanks :]

Kris | 215 comments Long shot but I thought of "Parsley Sage, Rosemary & Time" when I read the description... I learned the word "gaol" from this book eons ago.

Holly (hollylovesbooks) | 761 comments It's not Fog Magic, is it? Some of your details don't fit, but it does involve the girl finding a cabin in the woods & going back in time. It's also old enough, being published in the 40s originally (it was reprinted later, especially by Scholastic, I believe)

edit: also, if you're still looking for this book, you might want to check out this listopia.
