When his brother gets sick, Tom is shipped off to spend what he’s sure will be a boring summer with his aunt and uncle in the country.
But then Tom hears the old grandfather clock in the hall chime thirteen times and he’s transported back in time to an old garden, where he finds a friend in a young, lonely girl named Hatty.
Tom returns to the garden every night to have adventures with Hatty, who grows a little older with each visit. Their friendship transcends time and age, and as the summer comes to an end, Tom realises he wants to stay with Hatty forever.
