Fiery red-haired Magra has been branded a witch, and must burn at the stake. Magra runs, over the hills and far away, leaving her family behind. More than a thousand years later, red-haired Sara is pony-trekking in the same hills, when in a cruel twist of time the two girls meet and change places.
William Mayne has been described as one of the outstanding children's authors of this century (Oxford Companion to Children's Lit.). He has won all major awards including the Carnegie and Guardian fiction award. Susan Hill wrote of The Fox Gate, his first storybook for Hodder, 'These stories for eight-year-olds and up are jewels - the words 'timeless' and 'classic' should be used sparingly, but are justified here.'
