Thirteen-year-old Betony has always hated going to her cranky great-grandmother’s house. It’s old, stuffy and boring, and the woodstove in the kitchen is always burning too hot.

One day Betony sits on her Gram’s favorite chair. She is suddenly transported into the past and experiences her gram’s life as if it were in her own memory.

At first Betony is excited and curious, and even learns to cook and quilt. But she soon realizes she is uncovering a terrible, shameful family secret.
