Overview

From the New York Times–bestselling Grand Master of Science Fiction: New stepsiblings Chris and Nan have time-traveling adventures in an old English inn.

What is the magic of the Red Hart Inn, an exquisite model of an old English inn, that triggers three strange and exciting adventures back into earlier centuries for its two owners?

Chris Fitton and his new stepsister Nan Mallory, both lonely and unhappy, must test their courage through three tumultuous periods of English history in this skillfully written time-warp fantasy. What they learn about themselves and each other enables them to live more fully in their own time.

Red Hart Magic is the 6th book in the Magic Sequence, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

At first glance Chris thought it was a dollhouse, but a very small one. He would have passed it over, except there was something about it-- He had never seen a house just like it, except in a book once.
"Here you are, Columbus's flagship, and a World War II bomber--"
Chris hardly heard what the man said as he slid two boxes onto the top of the case.
"That,"--he pointed at the inn--"What's that? A dollhouse?"
"That? Oh, you mean the peep show."
Chris did not take his eyes from the inn as he asked, "What's a peep show?"
"You look in the windows, see?" The man slid open the back of the case after he had unlocked it. He lifted out the inn and put it down before Chris. "It's old, that. A real unusual piece."

Chris Fitton¿s father and Nan Mallory¿s mother marry leaving their stunned twelve year old offspring to stay with Aunt Elizabeth for six months while their parents gallivant in Mexico. Both children are used to living with someone else whereas Chris stayed at boarding schools, Nan was raised by her grandma, who has moved into a senior citizen¿s community in which children can visit for short times, but cannot stay. At a nearby store, Chris finds the model of the Red Hart Inn. At night while asleep and dreaming, Chris and Nan believe they have traveled to the real Red Hart.------------- 'The King's Hunters'. During the rule of King James, Chris and Nan try to save the innkeeper accused of being a priest who if true illegally owns the Red Hart Inn which is punishable by death. ---------------- 'The Gentlemen'. The smugglers seek the wounded excise officer in order to kill him before he can identify them to authorities he hides in the Red Hart Inn where Chris and Nan try to keep him safe.------------- 'Hue and Cry'. When the fire burned down Squire Mallory's barn, Chris is accused of committing the arson that almost killed several people. Bow Street runner Harry Hawkins, a friend of the family, tries to prove the lad is innocent before an angry mob takes justice into its own hands.--------------- This reprint of a 1970s young adult tale is character driven as in between their adventures Nan and Chris have problems at home and at school. They feel like they do not belong anywhere and reject being step-siblings. The most popular girl in class wants Nan as a friend, but at an exorbitant cost the most popular boy in the school picks on Chris. However, their time travel ¿dreams¿ that they have shared provide confidence for both to seek the right thing. Thus the great Andre Norton provides the audience with a strong fantasy wrapped inside a poignant family drama.----------- Harriet Klausner
