In the tradition of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and A Wrinkle in Time comes the first book in an exciting fantasy series about three siblings’ adventures on the high sea?the Sea of Time, that is.

After 9/11, Susan and her younger brothers Charles and Murray are sent to live with their Uncle Farley in Canada. Uncle Farley’s house looks like a ship perched at the edge of the sea, but it’s not until a great flood comes that the house’s name?Drift House?starts to make sense.

Floating aimlessly on the Sea of Time, the shiplike house begins to yield its many secrets?including a mural that seems to predict the future, a dumbwaiter that enables Murray to travel into the future and back again, and a parrot historian who’s also a gifted translator.

But when a clan of diabolical mermaids trick the children and their uncle into helping them carry out a plan that will stop time forever, it will take all of Susan’s ingenuity?along with some help from a great whale, a band of pirates, and a magic carpet?to set things straight.
