Fantastic book about a girl whose parents have recently split moving into a new house with something...odd about it. The girl, Emily, feels out of place, caught between friends she hasn't made yet and losing her old ones, and her emotions gradually lead her to see images of the past, the Great Plague of 1665, imprinted on the present. And then the opposite happens and she finds herself in 1665 in the middle of a terrifying situation.

The book is written entirely in the present tense, which I found annoying for about three seconds and then I stopped noticing it because the author uses the technique so skillfully. It makes it seem like Emily is perpetually stunned by everything that's happening to her, and it's all going down much too fast. Since that was clearly the author's intent, it works.

There are two other fantastic books that this one reminds me of. One is "The Ghost of Thomas Kempe" by Penelope Lively, and the other is "Black Harvest" by Ann Cheetham or Ann Pilling (Ann has two pen names and you can find editions of that book under either). They share a similarity in plot — somehow the past gets involved with the present — and also that in both of them, the main character is dealing with some major life issues that are given context or illuminated by dealing with the ghost problem. If you've enjoyed either of those books, you'll probably like this one, and vice versa. ( )

This book is also called “Here comes a candle”. Emily’s new house unlocks her ability to connect with the past and suddenly she is able to move between now & the London on the 1600s when the Black Death was rife, all the while in present day a plague has come from India and is also threatening people now. p.20-23 when E meets a boy she can’t understand at first (Seth) who has lost his cat and he gives his address as HER house!
