Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A uniquely evocative novel of two eras, two outcasts, two journeys...

FROM THE OLD WORLD

England, 1689: Banished from her father's house, Lady Eliza Grey's one wish is to find her long-lost brothers. She does, only to discover them enslaved by a strange and terrible magic. Now, caught in a fairy tale turned real, she vows to break the spell and free those she loves — even though her loyalty may cost Eliza her life...

TO A NEW WORLD

New York, 1981: Banished from his father's house, Elias Latham's one wish is to find acceptance. He does, only to discover his new family and friends falling prey to a dreadful and mysterious plague. Now, caught in a nightmare turned real, Elias vows to stand beside those he loves — even though his faithfulness may cost him his life...

Two struggles. Two curses. Two tales. One truth.

Synopsis:

This novel focuses on two outcasts on two journeys in two eras. In 1689 England, Lady Eliza Grey's 11 brothers are turned into swans. Rejected by her father, Eliza is flown to America by her brothers where she has a chance to save them--until she is accused of witchcraft. In the second story, set in 1981 New York, Elias Latham has AIDS, is banished from his father's house, and must learn to live on the streets. Like Eliza, Elias struggles to understand the suffering he must endure.
