New twin sisters Miri and Molly are ready for a normal life. But just when they think there's smooth sailing ahead, a door opens, time folds, and magic is unleashed from their very special house.
The girls set off on a new adventure, playing a cat-and-mouse game with time--and trouble--as they discover two soldiers in need of their help. With cunning, imagination, and the inadvertent assistance of their kitten, Molly and Miri must find a way to save themselves and their wayward brothers from the past.
Brimming with lovable characters and spine-tingling magic, this sequel will bring new readers to Annie Barrows' highly acclaimed, wonderfully popular world of twin-inspired magic.

“Entertaining and heart-warming... A story to remember.” —Library Media Connection
“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
