Poor Toma€™s Ghosta€”dramatic, wholly convincing, a fascinating intermingling of the centuriesa€”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 Deba€™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 disappeara€”until, one night, the house is filled with a sound of wild grieving that Roger traces to an empty room. Only Rogera€”and later his small stepsister Pippaa€”sees the ghosts, among them is that of Tom Garland, a well-known actor in Shakespearea€™s time. But Rogera€™s father, playing Hamlet in the famous National Theatre, is caught up, unknowingly, in Toma€™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.She was passionately fond of Shakespeare even if she did tend to muddle one play up with another.
