The tree is a secret meeting place for three girls, but one of them, Anne, who is completely deaf, was born over four hundred years ago in Elizabethan England. Slowly, Rachel and Joanna build up an extraordinary friendship with this very unusual ghost.

The Times Educational Supplement reviewer wrote:
"In The Time Tree, the child's logic is pertinent and touching, and the theme of deafness beautifully apt: If you can't hear anything, it might be difficult to believe you were there at all."
