‘Jodi Taylor is quite simply the Queen of Time. Her books are a swashbuckling joyride through History’ C. K. MCDONNELL

‘A great mix of British properness and humour with a large dollop of historical fun’ *****

Meet St Mary’s – a group of tea-soaked disaster magnets who hurtle their way around History.



If the whole of History lay before you, where would you go?

When Dr Madeleine Maxwell is recruited by the St Mary’s Institute of Historical Research, she discovers the historians there don’t just study the past – they revisit it.

But one wrong move and History will fight back – to the death. And Max soon discovers it’s not just History she’s fighting…
