    When Maria came home

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    When Maria came home, her mother asked her with whom had she gone to the concert.

    Re: When Maria came home

    You can say with whom she had gone to the concert. You don't invert the subject and the verb here because it's a statement reporting a question, not a question itself.

    Teechar's version is more natural.
