EVERY STORY OPENS A DOOR
In a house filled with exotic treasures, January Scaller feels all too similar to the artefacts that decorate the shelves: a treasured object, carefully maintained yet utterly out of place. Largely ignored by her guardian, she spends her days reading about all the far-flung places she can only dream of visiting.
But her quiet existence is shattered when she stumbles across a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story that might just be the key to unlocking the secrets of her past.
