    • Abstract:
      Summary: Life used to be great for Rose: full of friends, a loving mom, and a growing fashion blog. But when her mother dies in a car crash, Rose is sent away to live with a strange grandmother she hardly knows and forced to attend a new school where mean girls ridicule her at every turn. The one place Rose finds refuge is in her grandmother's Tudor-style greenhouse. But one night, she sees a strange light glowing from within it. She climbs a ladder to investigate... and finds herself transported back four hundred years to Hatfield Palace, where she becomes servant and confidante of the banished princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Henry VIII. Rose soon discovers something else surprising -- a locket with two mysterious images inside it, both of them clues to her own past. Could her grandmother's greenhouse portal offer answers to the mysteries of her family... and their secrets? And how will she ever unravel them all?

Booklist Reviews 2019 January #1

After her mother's death, Rose is sent to Indianapolis to live in her frail grandmother Rosalinda's stately house. Feeling adrift, she becomes a target of vicious mean girls at her new school. Though her grief and the added stress are hard to bear, Rose makes a few friends, begins to feel closer to her forgetful grandmother, and discovers a secret: Rosalinda's conservatory offers a gateway for time travel to Princess Elizabeth's household, then at Hatfield Palace, while Henry VIII is king. Rose's story climaxes when she finds her father in sixteenth-century England. Between Rose's ventures into the past, time passes swiftly there, and at the story's end, Elizabeth's stepsister, Mary, is queen. Lasky, who wrote Elizabeth: Red Rose of the House of Tudor (1999) for the Royal Diaries series, now sets the scene convincingly in both periods. Rose's disorientation in the present makes her escapes into the past seem more plausible, while her longing for family gives her search for a father more urgency. This enjoyable time-travel chapter book will leave readers hoping for a sequel. Grades 4-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
