Have you ever wondered if there are other worlds? And if there were, would you visit them? January Scaller, a semi-orphan raised by a wealthy benefactor, has the gift of opening the doors between worlds, and so does Adelaide, a young woman raised in Kentucky at the turn of the 20th century.
Initially, they explore their gifts in parallel, but independent stories. Eventually, these tales merge into one as they discover their true histories and the ties that bind them.
As January leaves her childhood behind, she learns whom to trust and whom to fear and discovers that she is far stronger than she imagined.
The author’s use of language is vivid, evocative and almost poetic, with every word carefully chosen in order to wake all of your senses in this voyage into the unknown.
