Oh! How do I express my gladness to have experienced this book? I can’t believe it’s from 1958. It could be a 1970s child, who feels his summer was forfeited by spending it with his apartment-dwelling Aunt. He loves his family’s yard and his Aunt only has trashcans on cement. With his brother ill, away he goes. His Aunt is keen to take him out but his Uncle is my least favourite type; debating whatever you utter. I love that <i>Tom</i> issues metaphysical challenges to him!

I hadn’t heard of <b>Philippa Pearce</b>, who was surely a dear person to create this. I found “<b>Tom’s Midnight Garden</b>” at bargain shops where I make lasting discoveries like this. It looked like a ghost story but I quickly shook off my dismay that this isn’t what it is. It’s a poignantly-layered, enriching rendezvous across time. The apartments are inside a manor house, that once had vast grounds. When <i>Tom</i> descends for a look at a family clock that its elderly owner winds: he sees the original acreage out the door! It isn’t a one-time privilege. He walks about night after night, visible to no one except a girl his age. The reasons worked out are remarkably imaginative and plausible.

He is clearly visiting a bygone time but most extraordinary of all, it dawns on the pair eventually that his appearances encounter her at different stages. For <i>Hatty</i>, they become friends straight through to her adult life. It is far briefer on his part but he carries those summer weeks into his heart too. This was meant as a startling moment but it’s beautiful, that neither noticed a gap widening in their ages because of their bond. The peaceful conclusion stays with me. I fervently wish there were a sequel, to visit them again!

This really is a beautiful, haunting, magical, classic book. I was so happy I discovered it as a kid because I had heard nothing about it and haven't since. I highly recommend reading it. It has a really nice feel to it and she's a good writer. Satisfying ending, too.
