      A first novel.

    In her first young adult novel, Ann Walsh tells of Elizabeth Connell, young and bored with small-town life in Wells, BC. She longs to get back to the excitement of the city-that is, until she finds a small gold ring in the nearby Barkerville graveyard and discovers the secret of time travel. By twisting the ring on her finger, Elizabeth travels from modern day to the nineteenth century during the heyday of the gold rush. Caught between her present life with family and friends and a love in the past, Elizabeth learns more about herself than she ever imagined.

    Ideal for Language Arts or Social Studies lessons discussing the BC Gold Rush, Canadian pioneers, the geography of the Interior or as an exciting and original novel for the curious and adventurous young adult reader, this excellent work offers a rare gift for children who want a book that is more than history but no less than fiction. This book will give you pause to remember your own history and make you eager to seek out other work by Ann Walsh.
