Publisher's Summary

A little boy appears in Josephine's garden. He disappears just as mysteriously.

Twelve-year-old Josephine Russing lives alone with her father. Mr. Russing is a distant, cold man, best known for his insistence that every member of their town wear gloves at all times. One day, Josephine meets an odd, silent boy named Fargus who mysteriously disappears. 

Trying to find him, Josephine soon finds herself in another world called Gulm, which is ruled by the "Master", a terrifying villain who has taken all of the town's children. With Fargus by her side and joined by his fiery friend Ida, Josephine tries to return to the safety of home. 

As the trio attempts to evade the Master, they encounter numerous adventures and discover the surprising truth about the land of Gulm and Josephine's own life back home.

Praise for the book:

“A gently creepy, captivating fantasy about loss, determination, and hope." (Publishers Weekly)

Loved

I absolutely loved this book. It’s fantasy and time travel and mystery at its best. I was transported to another world and wholly invested in Josephine’s journey. I’m so glad the sequel just came out. I can’t wait to dive in.

Clever, and thoroughly entertaining

This clever story sucked me in from the first page. Although appropriate for children and young adults, it was equally entertaining for me. I loved the character development as much as the inventive plot. I was thoroughly entertained. I can’t wait to share it with my little one when she gets just a little bit older. A gem!
