J.J. and Sam are on a school tour of the Government House of Saskatchewan. While there they somehow slip into the past and meet George Watt the designer of the beautiful Edwardian Garden that decorates the ground of the Government House. Over the next couple of weeks the girls slide between the present, the past of the 1890s and the past of the 1940s to solve the case of a missing pocket watch.
This is a ghost story with more than one tricky twist. The characters are well developed and likeable. It is a ghost story with friendly ghosts but scary time traveling experiences. An interesting look at Canadian life. Fun for upper elementary.
