Julie is an intelligent, psychic, thirteen year old living in Maine with her parents and brother. Aware but shy of her psychic gift, she finally meets a mysterious stranger who directs her to correct an error made in another lifetime. She needs to go back in time a hundred years to solve this error, so she may enter and work in a mystery school that subtly influences her contemporary world.
When she goes back to her previous life in the same town but one hundred years earlier, she changes into Victoria, a beautiful seventeen-year-old niece from Boston, Massachusetts. She spends the summer at her Aunt Leticia’s beach side estate. She meets Jonathan and proceeds to fall in love for the first time while solving an ancient murder.
She must work against forces of darkness that want control over ancient dolmans that travel through time and change energy fields. She learns to trigger these ancient stones found in the garden and travels back to an even earlier time when another murder is committed.
Armed with this knowledge, she is able to solve the mystery of her past life.
But Julie is called back to her own time when everything is finished leaving Jonathan behind.
Somehow she must find him again.
Resolved to do this, she is ready to begin her search with new belief in her own self and the powerful talents she has unlocked.

This is a book that will resonate especially well with young teens who might dream of traveling to another time and, by reading this, will be able to do it. Filled with twists and turns and a lovely connection to coastal Maine, we also feel close to the heroine who learns a lot of lessons and finds love. I enjoyed it and I am not young--
so, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good story and a serious questioning about time and space.
I was captivated from the beginning by the plot twists and familiar descriptions of the nearby southern Maine coast. This read is aimed at 13 year old female readers who like mystery, romance, time travel and who are open to metaphysical possibilities. (I guess I must still fit that description because I truly enjoyed it!) I can see this being part of a series as the heroine is enjoyable and driven to solve mysteries.
