One hundred years ago, a valuable timepiece was stolen from Silas Heron and the theft blamed on a beggar boy. But, as Sophie, Jack and Simon discover, the truth is far more complex. A sinister stranger appears at the abandoned railway station, who seems to have some tie to shifty Reg Boston.

Review:

The past and the present collide when Sophie, Jack and Simon find themselves embroiled in a ghostly mystery that takes them on an adventure they could never have imagined. As the story of The Midwinter Watch unfolds, and the three children are drawn deeper and deeper into the past, their courage and stamina are stretched to the limit.

The Midwinter Watch is a charming, old-fashioned ghost story brought bang up to date by the talent of the author John Gordon. His eye for detail, obvious love of landscape, and his enviable flair for descriptive prose which takes the reader to the very heart of the story, together add a chilly atmosphere and discernible tension to an intriguing plot which develops gently, gradually drawing the reader deeper into the mystery. Pure pleasure for lovers of good old- fashioned ghost stories, The Midwinter Watch is an excellent book for curling up with on dark and dingy nights. --Susan Harrison
