Summary
In 1960s Oxford, Professor Henry Lytten is attempting to write a fantasy novel that forgoes the magic of his predecessors, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. He finds an unlikely confidante in his quick-witted, inquisitive young neighbor Rosie. One day, while chasing Lytten's cat, Rosie encounters a doorway in his cellar. She steps through and finds herself in an idyllic, pastoral land where Storytellers are revered above all others. There she meets a young man who is about to embark on a quest of his own--and may be the one chance Rosie has of returning home. These breathtaking adventures ultimately intertwine with the story of an eccentric psychomathematician whose breakthrough discovery will affect all of these different lives and worlds

Summary
Spanning multiple worlds, this stylistically complex, yet accessible, novel tracks the intersecting lives of several characters. There's Henry Lytten, a 1960s Oxford scholar; Angela Meersen, a "psychomathematician" from a dystopian future world who has discovered a method of accessing parallel universes; and Jay, a precocious young man from Anterworld, a universe created by Meersen based on Lytten's writings -- an "Arcadia" visited by Rosie Wilson, an otherwise ordinary British teenager who can travel between dimensions. -- Description by Gillian Speace
