'Georgie's sad. She wants me to help her. Can't you see her, Jemma? She's right there.' Jemma has just landed her first babysitting job, in one of the famous Witches' Houses. Sammy says it's haunted, but Jemma doesn't know what to believe.

One day Jemma discovers an ivory rose charm. As she touches it she sees a terrifying flashback. Is it the moment the ghost girl was murdered? Jemma runs away but tumbles down the stairs. She wakes up in 1895, unable to get home.

Jemma becomes a maid - but all is not well in the grand house. Jemma begins to suspect that the young heiress, Georgiana, is being poisoned. Now she must find the proof and rescue her friend - before time runs out.

Belinda Murrell has worked as a travel journalist, technical writer, editor and public relations consultant. Her overseas adventures inspired her work as a travel writer for the West Australian newspaper and Out and About With Kids travel magazine. Her work has also appeared in the Sun Herald, Sunday Telegraph and Sydney Morning Herald. While Belinda studied Children's Literature at Macquarie University, her passion for children's books was reignited when she had her own three children and began telling and writing stories for Nick, Emily and Lachlan. Belinda's books include the Sun Sword fantasy trilogy, Scottish timeslip tale The Locket Of Dreams, French Revolution timeslip tale The Ruby Talisman, Australian timeslip tale The Ivory Rose and Australian historical tales The Forgotten Pearl and The River Charm. Belinda is also an author ambassador for Room to Read and Books in Homes.


Fans of Belinda Murrell s time slip tales will not be disappointed with her latest addition to the sries . . . This is a thoroughly engaging story . . . Murrell s artful and thoroughly researched crafting of setting, her cast of believable characters, and her bent for interesting plot twists will keep this book securely in the hands of the reader until it is finished. Magpies This light, easy-to-read novel will tie in well with topics on Australian history in the Society and Environment learning area and the Australian curriculum. Fiction Focus I haven't enjoyed a junior fiction read so thoroughly or as much as I did The Ivory Rose for quite some time. Perhaps it was the local setting of Annandale in Sydney. Perhaps it was the time slip theme as Jemma found herself suddenly in 1895. Perhaps it was the well-drawn, believable characters. Or perhaps it was the strong, warm-hearted, likeable Jemma. It was all of the above! bronasbooks.blogspot.com
