- Tennessee. David, age fifteen, runs through a thick forest. He's been abused, threatened. He's more than scared. He's terrified.
An orphan, hard-working and alone, he is accused of theft. Not true. Unthinkable.
Limping from a torn muscle and pelted with icy rain, David stumbles onto an old road. A creaking gate startles him in the darkness. The rain lets up and a full moon breaks through the clouds, illuminating two stone eagles on pillars higher than his head and carved of white marble. He shivers, the eagles familiar as in a dream.
At the end of the cobbled drive, a mansion is framed in the moonlight. Desperate and exhausted, he breaks in. With a dusty candle lit and trembling in his hand, he discovers an astonishing library, crowded with furniture and bookshelves that soar into dark shadows. Cold and in pain, David sinks into the warmth of a cushioned chair.
As he sleeps, he does not see a shimmering light drifting down a curved, iron staircase. The light approaches, hovers, and as David stirs, disappears. Has he been lured into a trap or a refuge?
