Molly and Miri Gill are twins. They look the same, act the same, sometimes even think the same. But they weren't always twins. . . . Molly used to live in 1935, until Miri traveled back in time to save her from the clutches of Molly's evil adoptive family. Only they know about the magic, and its power to set things right. So when home repairs unleash more unexpected magic from their very special . . . very magical old house, the girls set off on another time-traveling adventure to the Civil War where they race against the clock to save two unusual soldiers and come to terms with the truth about Molly's real past.
Brimming with lovable characters and spine-tingling magic, this long-awaited sequel will bring a whole new batch of readers to Annie Barrows' highly acclaimed, wonderfully popular world of twin-inspired magic.

“Time travel is tricky. Barrows, though, proves she knows the way around the paradoxes that can stymie science fiction writers . . . The plot is fast paced and thrilling.” —VOYA
“Barrows examines many of the previously unanswered, difficult questions of time travel but does not answer all mysteries, paving the way for a possible third book.” —Kirkus Reviews
