Kim Murray is happily planning her wedding when she finds herself pulled two centuries back in time. It's 1795, the rise of Napoleon, and Kim is now a guardian spirit for a twelve-year-old kid who will either become Kim's ancestor . . . or the timeline will alter and Kim will vanish, along with the small, magical European country of Dobrenica. What? Yes, the child called Aurelie de Mascarenhas must get to Dobrenica, or more than just one family will vanish.

Kim hates time travel conundrums, and knows nothing about kids. How is she going to guide a kid born on Saint-Domingue, with whom she has nothing in common?

From Jamaica to England to the Paris of the early 1800s, Kim and Aurelie travel, sharing adventures and learning more about Vrajhus, the Blessing, and the Nasdrafus than is known in Dobrenica's modern times. Along the way to wedding bells or annihilation, Kim makes a shocking discovery . . .

This book, while related to the previous two in the series, focuses more on the life of Aurelie and her journey to Dobrenica during the time of Napoleon. Her life is upset first when she is moved from Jamaica to England at 13 and lives in the cold house of her English aunt and Uncle. Then again at 18 when her suspicious aunt finds out that her father was actually a run-away slave and she is rejected for being half African. Aurelie is forced to leave with no money and just the clothes on her back. She does meet up with two fellow musicians who believe she is a boy and they make their way to Paris. They go their separate ways and then eventually rejoin to journey across France, Austria and finally end in Dobrenica. Things don't go smoothly though and they have some other adventures before returning and getting married. Finally Kim returns to Alec and her family and everyone has their happy ending. There are a few unanswered questions which may be the set-up for another book in this series.
