Miles McTavish is fifteen years old. He’s good hearted, but, as the only child of wealthy parents, he has been very sheltered.  His friend, a retired English professor turned bicycle shop owner, informs Miles that he’s been chosen - by a mysterious figure known only as “the Gypsy” - to travel back to the England of 1928. Once there, Miles is to find a “girl with a gift, a girl born out of her time” and “a secret that was not meant to be,” and then return home with them both. Miles is faced with a series of impossible tasks. His fainting heart is his first and most persistent enemy - one he overcomes, decision by decision, with the help of his friends. His adventure carries him from England’s beautiful countryside to London’s jazz-age cabarets and from terrified boy to resilient young man.
