Summary
Poor Tom{u2019}s Ghost{u2014}dramatic, wholly convincing, a fascinating intermingling of the centuries{u2014}portrays a family whose uncertain bonds are tested and strengthened by a threat from the past. When the Nicholas family first sees the derelict old house near London that has been left to them in Aunt Deb{u2019}s will, they are sadly disappointed. Thirteen-year-old Roger is the most disappointed, since, having moved place to place all his life with his gifted actor-father, he longs for some measure of stability. Then Roger and his father discover, under peeling wallpaper and rotted paneling, traces of a much older, more graceful house, and their misgivings disappear{u2014}until, one night, the house is filled with a sound of wild grieving that Roger traces to an empty room. Only Roger{u2014}and later his small stepsister Pippa{u2014}sees the ghosts, among them is that of Tom Garland, a well-known actor in Shakespeare{u2019}s time. But Roger{u2019}s father, playing Hamlet in the famous National Theatre, is caught up, unknowingly, in Tom{u2019}s old tragedy. It is a frightened Roger who has to risk his life to find a way to mend the past before the present becomes its tragic echo
