The last thing Gertrude remembers is landing at the Edinburgh airport, but this medieval world where she finds herself bears no resemblance to Scotland. Here there is neither indoor plumbing, nor any electronics, cars, busses or trains.
When she discovers that she's pregnant her fear mounts. There are no hospitals, no doctors, and no stores in which to buy diapers or baby food. And why can't she remember the father?
But things are worse than she imagines—her past is catching up. And when her baby is kidnapped, disturbing memories resurface.
Little does she know that searching for her baby will pull her into a larger quest to save the world. But before she can do either, she must save herself. Does she have the strength to overcome the obstacles in her way before it's too late to save anyone?
Aided by a man from her distant past and a magical boat, she hunts for her child in worlds that should only exist in myth.
