Who is this oddly dressed girl? Where did she come from? What is she doing on the rock outcrop, Emily's favourite spot on her late grandmother's farm? Come to think of it, where is the farm?

Emily, a twelve-year-old girl from the city, has come to say goodbye to the family homestead following her grandmother's funeral. Magically, miraculously, she finds herself transported back to a bygone era when pioneers first settled the Canadian prairies. How did she get here—and how will she get back home?

The Secret of Sentinel Rock is a rich, descriptive story of hope and inspirarion as Emily finds the confidence to get on with her future. Letting go of the past does not mean having to forget it.

Judith Silverthorne is a multiple-award winning Regina-based writer. She is the author of multiple novels for young readers with Coteau books.
