    When two children's parents are married and go to Mexico for six months they are forced to go live in a large city with the man's sister his son's aunt who he hardly knows Both hate the experience and the fact that their parent married and they are yet again dumped on relatives that don't really want them In a trip out the boy Chris buys a model of an Inn called the Red Hart This is not an ordinary model however but a model that makes the two children dream of times past in England where a lot of problems are taking place The problems involve them and they experience new ways of thought and insight into there lives today Each is then faced with modern problems that without the experience gained from the Red Hart Inn would have been unable to resolve successfully

    Difficult this one I am a huge Andre Norton fan but I probably read this book about 50 years too late It's what they call a Young Adukt book these days or Teen book Full of hormonal teenage angst loneliness and self absorption Basically a Timeslip novel centred around two step siblings in America suddenly time slipping to an English inn centuries in the past Of course their adventures in the past become parables for their problems in the presentHaving said that as you get older you realise that the Universe still isn't fair people still don't understand ones problems and it is hard to make and keep meaningful relationships

  3. Luann Luann says:

    One of a Norton's magic books set in the real world this story reflects admirable ualities existing in its characters brought out and nutured by their encounter with a magic item that gains them insight into their personal troubles I love that Norton can do this in her stories while creating a great read I know her writings shaped my personality as a child and a teenager and now as an adult remind me to nuture these ualitiesI also like that she explores historical periods in the magic books I highly recommend this book for its values its writing and as a painless way to learn a bit about English history

    Another children's fantasy by Ms Norton which I also wish I'd read when it came out I enjoyed it though I think Lavender Green Magic was better Two children new step siblings are stuck together with an aunt while their parents honeymoon Neither is happy about the situation and their life Then Chris finds a model of an inn called the Red Hart and three times he and his stepsister Nan travel through time in dreams to the Red Hart and experience adventures that enable them to stand up to problems in their lives and appreciate each other

    Another fun Andre Norton fantasy This one is set around an English inn political intrigues of the time and the young protagonists coming to terms with their parents remarrying to form a new family Sometimes I felt the historical plots were jolting but seemed based on actual events of a family history A lot of fun

    Entrancing story; good morals

    This book belongs to the Andre Norton Magic series Steel Magic Octagon Magic Dragon Magic Fur Magic Lavender Green Magic Red Hart Magic and Dragon Mage These don't have to be read in order although Dragon Magic should be read before Dragon MageAs in the others this novel deals with a theme of time travelmagic Chris and Nell suddenly find themselves as step siblings living with Chris' Aunt Elizabeth while their parents are on a long honeymoon They don't like each other their new schools or their aunt Then one day Chris sneaks into a second hand shop and buys a tiny model The Red Hart Inn Nell has found out what he bought and he isn't happy at all that she knows about something he wanted to keep privateBut then the magic begins In dreams they are both transported to different times and situations at the Red Hart Inn In these dreams they become a series of different children with their own names and faces and discover not only things about themselves and their own choices characters and strengths but about those of their sibling They gain new respect for their own abilities to adapt and to handle new and difficult challenges as well as the other's

    When Nan Mallory's mother marries Chris Fitton's father the two middle schoolers are sent to live with Chris' Aunt Elizabeth while their parents travel together Resentful of each other the new stepsiblings' only bond is a miniature model of an old English Inn that Chris finds in a Salvation Army shop The model triggers three time travel episodes in which the Inn plays a part in which both Chris and Nan display courage impressing each other and leading to a better relationship in the present While I liked this book I think it would have worked better had the children returned to the same place and approximately same time during their time travels Instead the first episode is during the time of James I the second episode involves smugglers during the Napoleonic era the third involves 19th century rivalry between the local gentry and the innkeeper's family Just as one grasps the issues and learns the characters the children return to the present Overall however an interesting story and can be compared to Storm from th West by Barbara Willard another stepsibling story

    I accidentally read this last book in the series before the other two gasp but I don't think it makes a difference since they don't seem to have any discernible connection running through them in terms of continuityOnce again the magic in this book is inscrutable Norton doesn't bother to explain her magic which I still find an interesting thing Another thing I enjoy about her books while they are not the most complex plots I have ever read they are children's novels for the most part there is a sense of realism about them that you can appreciate even after you have 'outgrown' them The characters and their problems are believable and fleshed out Another thing that's intriguing to me is how Norton doesn't wrap things up neatly and I always felt unrealistically which I think is not something often seen in many stories for children At the end of this book Nan and Chris know that things may not get better but they are going to try the best they can to move them in that direction and I think that's a good lesson for kids Nothing is ever easy or completely finished

    It's funny how many characters in Norton books come from 'broken' families In this story a model inn triggers time travel episodes that teach the viewpoint characters how to be siblingsI've mentioned before how Norton argued repeatedly that one ought to comply with authority figures no matter how cruel or corrupt I should add here what I've noted before she seemed to euate education with physical and emotional abuse It's no wonder that few of Norton's characters are scholars by preference though some in later books areThe illustrations are good pictures but they bear little resemblance to the text The model Red Hart inn is repeatedly described as very small one seuence says you could hold it in one hand But in the drawings it's shown as uite a bit larger
