About the Author:

Ruth Park was born in New Zealand and spent most of her life in Australia. She was born in 1922 in Auckland, and later moved to Te Kuiti in the north of the country with her parents. Ruth Park won the Miles Franklin Award for Swords and Crowns and Rings (1977), the Boston Globe Award for Playing Beatie Bow (1980), and was awarded the 1993 Lloyd O'Neil Magpie Award for services to the Australian book industry.

From AudioFile:

At last, this perfectly crafted time-travel novel has found its way onto audio for a new generation of children to enjoy! When Abigail Kirk, an odd misfit of a girl from Sydney, Australia, sews a scrap of lovely lace into the yoke of her handmade Victorian style dress, she cannot guess what it will mean for her. After she and her young friend, Natalie, observe a group of children playing a game called Beatie Bow, Abigail is transported to Victorian England in 1873, where she is acknowledged by the Bow family to be the long-awaited "stranger." Cate Milte's reading is marvelously evocative. She captures Granny's Orkney brogue and bountiful wisdom, Judah's sweet generosity, Dovey's unrelenting kindness, Mr. Bow's befuddled kindness, Gibby's incessant death-obsessed whining, and Beatie's sassy gruffness. The mystery of intricately connected events takes shape under Milte's careful reading and will make this a favorite recording of middle-grade and young adult listeners. T.B.
