Rebecca | 5 comments I read a book when I was 11 or 12, I think, late 1970's & can't remember the title. A girl or boy experiences a fire and somehow goes back in time to the 1800's, possibly London, England? Tries to get back to her/his own time. Theme of time being on a wheel on which you can go back and forth to past and possibly future, maybe a phoenix and/or fire near the end of the book... any ideas?
