She has only seen the world through maps. She had no idea they were so dangerous.

Boston, 1891. Sophia Tims comes from a family of explorers and cartologers who, for generations, have been traveling and mapping the New World—a world changed by the Great Disruption of 1799, when all the continents were flung into different time periods. Eight years ago, her parents left her with her uncle Shadrack, the foremost cartologer in Boston, and went on an urgent mission. They never returned. Life with her brilliant, absent-minded, adored uncle has taught Sophia to take care of herself.

Then Shadrack is kidnapped. And Sophia, who has rarely been outside of Boston, is the only one who can search for him. Together with Theo, a refugee from the West, she travels over rough terrain and uncharted ocean, encounters pirates and traders, and relies on a combination of Shadrack’s maps, common sense, and her own slantwise powers of observation. But even as Sophia and Theo try to save Shadrack’s life, they are in danger of losing their own.

The Glass Sentence plunges listeners into a time and place they will not want to leave, and introduces them to a heroine and hero they will take to their hearts. It is a remarkable debut.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Cassandra Campbell performs this compelling alternate history featuring Sophia, a girl from an era that echoes late-1800s Boston…Campbell creates voices and accents that deepen the characters. She helps listeners navigate the complicated plot as Sophia joins the mysterious Theo and follows her uncle’s maps to other countries that inhabit not only other spaces but also other times—some far in the past, others in the future. Campbell’s pace matches the story’s action, riddles, and exposition as Sophia tries to figure out her place in the world and how she might save it.”
