Kylie Winters is not your everyday woman. She, now being in her fifties, is all alone in life aside from her dog Ash that is anyway. She has no siblings or parents living any longer; there are no children keeping her busy. She does not have really many friends to speak of either, seeing as how she shares little with the socialites of the day. A good friend seems hard to come by. For Kylie her good friends have always been her books. That is where she can find the worlds that she longs to be in. One night while working late in Mr. Hadley’s book shop, something strange happens that leads Kylie on to exciting adventures. But who is behind these intriguing experiences, and what is there true agenda?
