Life has been hard for Kate, Michael and Emma.  Tossed from orphanage to orphanage over the past ten years, they end up in a gloomy, mysterious stone house in Cambridge Falls, where they appear to be the only orphans!  Touring the mansion, they discover an iron-barred room with 60 old dormitory beds, secret passageways, and a mysterious book which whisks them back to a time in Cambridge Falls when families are separated, children are prisoners, dwarves exist and magic is real!  The siblings meet the Countess, Dr. Pym, Abraham and Gabriel and have to discover who will help and who is really their enemy.  Along the way they realize it is up to them to not only save Cambridge Falls, but the world!  Are you up to the challenge to discover the secrets with Kate, Michael and Emma?  (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
