When a young girl’s only real joy, music, is suddenly taken away, a strange journey to rediscover her musical gift reaches beyond the stars to an amazing, harmonious world.

Fourteen-year-old Annie Wren’s love of music and her one true talent, playing the violin, kept her sane in a world full of struggles with math, social studies, and her parents. In fact, participating in the orchestra was the only good thing about middle school.
When a clash over her failing grades landed her in remedial math and extra tutoring classes, Annie wasn’t happy, but knew she’d make it through the rest of the school year. But when her parents took her out of orchestra they went too far. Her perpetual stomachaches got worse and she yearned for an escape.
Where could she go on her own? Would her grandparents, Nana and Doc, allow her to stay with them? She loved visiting their vacation condo in Charleston, and enjoyed trips with them to Scotland. They also had a cabin in Maine, but Annie didn’t want to go to Maine. She always felt uneasy there. Something about that place gave her bad dreams—ten years of strange, haunting dreams.
Annie yearned to unlock the mystery of her bizarre dreams. Little by little, memories began to surface, and then she had a revelation. The only way to discover the truth and bring back her music was to return to her Grandparent’s cabin…in Maine.
