Roger, Ann, Eliza, and Jack are spending their summer at the South Shore of Boston, in an ancient house by the sea. What's so special about this location? Probably, its beautiful garden. It's a garden full of the herb, thyme -- T-H-Y-M-E. All sorts of thyme. Golden Thyme, Splendid Thyme, Common Thyme, etc. These, as the children find out soon enough, are NOT your everyday ordinary thyme. With the help and knowledge of a Natterjack (you'll have to read the story to find out what THAT is!) the children have the most wonderful TIME -- T-I-M-E exploring and adventuring in all sorts of different TIMES. Read all about how they help a family of slaves make their way to Canada; take part in the revolutionary war; meet the fictional characters in The Little Women; accused of being witches... in The Time Garden.
