In a house called Tanglewreck lives a girl called Silver and her
guardian, Mrs. Rokabye. Unbeknown to Silver, there is a family
treasure in the form of a seventeenth-century watch called the
Timekeeper, and this treasure holds the key to the mysterious and
frightening changes in time. When Silver goes on the run to try to
protect herself and the Timekeeper, a remarkable and compelling
adventure unfolds, full of brilliance and wit, as is befitting an
author with the imagination and style of Jeanette Winterson.
