Rowan and eleven-year-old Nina spend the summer with two eccentric great-aunts
in a small town on the coast of Maine. The town is very odd with no electricity
or indoor plumbing. One morning Nina is missing. Rowan realizes that she
has used the time portal to go back in time to find their mother who has
recently died. Rowan takes friends along to go into the time portal during
the golden hour to find his sister and ends up in danger himself. Each
person is only allowed a week trip. Will Rowan find his sister in time
to get them through the portal during the silver or golden hour in a week?
