Upon the tragic loss of her mother, an American teenage girl is uprooted to move across the world to Athens, Greece in the midst of the financial crisis where she must learn to survive a new school, a different culture, and the highs and lows of new love.
But something isn’t right. A series of clues lead Helene to believe that her mother is still alive. She begins the perilous quest in Greece to solve this mystery and find her mother.
Through this journey, she discovers a ‘magical’ doorway that opens her eyes to a new and dangerous place – one that leads back to the deepest roots of modern civilization and Greek mythology – but nothing is as it seems. Or is it?
“…a thrilling story full of plot twists and turns…”
