Summary: Amy doesn't want to move away
from Halifax, her friends, her school, or the malls. But her parents have inherited land near Annapolis Royal and they can't wait to get away from city life.

Amy discovers an old door latch, and suddenly she is transported to a world that is strange to her; the world of the Acadians.

How will she ever survive in a time where there is no T.V., no cars, no video games? And, more importantly, how will she ever find her way back into her own time?
