When Matthew Clemens ventured into the churchyard to gather information about the Cornish miners buried there, one gravestone in particular seemed to call his attention. The inscription was to Reuben Visick and his two eldest sons, all three killed in a mining accident more than a hundred years before. But below the inscription were the words that echoed again and again inWhen Matthew Clemens ventured into the churchyard to gather information about the Cornish miners buried there, one gravestone in particular seemed to call his attention. The inscription was to Reuben Visick and his two eldest sons, all three killed in a mining accident more than a hundred years before. But below the inscription were the words that echoed again and again in Matthew's head: "And to Jeremy Visick, His Son, Age 12, Whose Body Still Lies in Wheal Maid." The lines were as clear to Matthew as if he'd heard them spoken. Night after night they drew him to the churchyard, or to the outbuilding behind the Clemens home, where Jeremy Visick had lived, until Matthew began to sense that somehow his destiny and Jeremy Visick's were inexorably intertwined. Jeremy Visick is an irresistible and gripping adventure story about loyalty and one boy's commitment to another across time....

    A book that begins with a bored kid in a history class who is destined to discover via time travel that history really is about life itself is a winning theme for me, but the author took so long in getting to the actual time travel, I just gave up in the middle. I understand the author has an advanced degree in history. No doubt, he knew his subject - British coal miners - very well, but a creative writing course could have made this a much more engrossing read.

    Jeremy Visicks by David Wiseman is about a boy named Mathew Clemens who was happy before but when he goes to a new school he gets an assignment to look at a gravestone in the graveyard but when he gets there he gets interested in another gravestone about the visicks. It says that the dad and three boys were killed but one of the boys is still in the mine. since this happened 150 years ago Mathew is surprised that they never found the boys body so he feels really bad for him. One day he can't go to sleep at night so he looks out the window and he sees the visicks stone from his room and he hears the visick's stone talking. This book does not have that much action in it but it has alot of drama with mathew seeing alot of strange things about the visicks. This book is really interesting and it was hard for me to put it down. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy mysterious stories or ghost stories but you should know that it is not that scary. It may sound like it is scary but there isn't much scary moments. If you ever get a chance to you should check out this book.

    We read this book in my first year of high school, and (in stark contrast to most of the books we were forced to read as part of the curriculum) 10 and a half years later I remember being gripped and very touched by it. The only real reason I haven't given it a 5th star is that I fear I may be impaired by the fondness for the time period, though I did re-read it recently and still found it a very good read.

    This book came up to my classroom from the sixth grade and I thought it looked interesting. There were only ten copies, so I brought this book up to the book club at the Jr. High. It has been a hit so far and I am glad this one came to my attention. I will probably also use it with a reading circle in the coming year.The book is most definitely a British ghost story and has some great turns in it.

    I can't really comment on how well-written this novel is. The last time I read it, I was in 6th grade. What I can tell you is that this was my go-to read as a kid. I am sure I checked it out and read it AT LEAST 10 times between 4th and 6th grade. My favorite book from my childhood by far!

    This is a book really intended for 12-year-olds, but I liked it a lot anyway. After all, so was Harry Potter.It is set at Gwennap, near my home, and instils a great sense of the atmosphere, culture and history of the place.It is also quite scary.

    It was a short read, but fast paced.

    Interesting start, but it turned into a sort of bog standard spooky story with rather 2d characters.

    A lovely book that really gripped me and one that I realise I had read before in school once I got started with it. A nice short read.

    Intriguing story about a 12 yr old boy drawn into the past and tragic story about dead copper mining boy. Creepy and good.
