    One thought on “Why Have the Birds Stopped Singing?”

    1. This was one of my favorite books as a young teenager. I found it on Ebay - a retired high school library book. I'm sure it took me longer to read it back then, but this time it took me less than two hours.The tale of teenage Katie going back in time as her great-great-great grandmother enthralled me as a girl, perhaps solidifying my love for time travel in literature. It was not as grand a love story as I remember, although my perspective is quite different some 25 years later. I was amused by [...]

    2. I read this at the tender age of 11 and it has stayed with me till today. This story had it all for a young girl who loved to read: a medical condition, mystery, time travel, love story. And I even loved the cover so much I reproduced it by hand for my own book report cover for school! Still a recommendation.

    3. I read this book when I was 11 and it is still one of my all time favorite books. I have read it many times thru the years. (It only takes about 2 hours) My first love story and time travel book.

    4. I remember reading this in elementary and not enjoying it. So take this rating for what it is, a vague memory.

    5. Katie is taking a tour of the Pacific Northwest with nine other girls and teacher. One day, in Port Townsend, Katie, who has epilepsy, mixes up her handbag with her friend's handbag. She ends up having a seizure (no access to her medication) and when she wakes up, she is a hundred years in the past. Here she is known as Kathryn. Kathryn also has epilepsy but it is not the treatable disease it is in Katie's time. As Katie learns to navigate the past, she is given a glimpse into a world where her [...]

    6. I read this book for the first time when I was about 11 or 12 and really enjoyed it. It has stuck with me forever and every once in awhile it pops back in and I think I have to find that book, I need to read it again. I was very happy when I unpacked a box that had been in storage for a long time and tada~there it was! I was excited.

    7. Absolutely beautiful book. I read it for the first time as a nine year-old and it has stuck with me ever since. A book with everything: romance, time-travel (of sorts), and a very typical peak at the historical interpretation of neurological diseases.

    8. A great story to share with your daughters. It is filled with love, understanding, and triumph.

    9. This book puts an interesting perspective on the way society has changed especially with it's out look toward epilepsy I would recommend this book to anyone.

    10. Read this book when I was about 13 and just re-read it. Hard to find, but it is still just as good as it was all those years ago!

    11. I didn't finish this book because Poe,my dog, ate it. I asked her for her review of the book, but she evidently had nothing to say.

    12. Loved this book as a teenager! My copy says 95 cents. Still thought it was a sweet book, but my tastes have changed a little since then. Wonder what the new generation of young teens would think?Would they like it as much as I did? I think they would be shocked at the part where the main character falls, hits her head, and lies unconscious for a long period. They take her to the hotel and call a doctor instead of a hospital visit and after bandaging her wound, the leader of the group asks her if [...]

    13. This story captivated me for several years in my early life (9-12~). I probably read it until I had parts memorized. A young woman struggles with her identity and reality when her epileptic seizures alter her perception of her world and those in it. If you are looking to get a young person intrigued with reading this may be an alternative to purchasing witchcraft or stories laden with sex and foul language.

    14. Oh nostalgia! I read this when I was 14 (for a library competition) and even now have fond memories of it. Epilepsy and time travel and romance.

    15. Started out with more potential than it ended up providing. Simple story, girl ends up back in time. There's a lot that's not explained that leaves confusion.Requiem for a Princess is much like this story and I liked it better along with Magic Elizabeth by Kassirer, Norma.Other ya books about going back in time: A Traveler In Time by Uttley, Tom's Midnight Garden, The Juniper Game. Hall Family series by Langton and The Aviary Hall series by P Farmer.
