    Chicago sixth graders Ruthie and Jack think they’ve learned everything about the magic of the Art Institute’s Thorne Rooms. But the magic starts to act strangely when Ruthie and Jack discover two rings that are out of place - and out of time - and a portal that shouldn’t be open but somehow is. Ruthie and Jack follow the clues to 17th-century England and the Brownlow house, where they meet the Brownlow’s governess, Rebecca. But Rebecca has a few secrets of her own - and she might even be in the wrong century!
