Tanglewreck

by Jeanette Winterson

Tanglewreck Synopsis

But Time is big business, and whoever gets control of Time controls life as we know it! 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 and 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.

Tanglewreck Press Reviews

'The tale is told with such sympathy and verve' The Times 'Winterson has a fine ear for children's dialogue and her writing is lucid, pitched perfectly at imaginative young readers' Sunday Telegraph 'A fantastical, imaginative and impressive parable' Financial Times 'An exceptional book: big, ambitious and awash with Winterson's usual inventiveness' Observer
