Twelve-year-old Tee is an apprentice with her father, a master blacksmith. When he dies unexpectedly, she discovers a notebook hidden inside a secret drawer in his workshop. In it, she finds detailed instructions to build a time machine. Grief stricken, she begins. But she is soon caught between her fervent wish to see her father again and the sheer impossibility of her task.
“Stefan Bolz’s writing is not merely inventive but lyrical, almost mystical. You can’t help but fall under the spell of the worlds he creates, the characters he gives life to. He’s one of that vanguard of authors bringing speculative fiction into a new silver age.”
— Samuel Peralta, award-winning author and creator of ‘The Future Chronicles’
