After her father’s death in a plane crash, Miranda Woodward’s life begins to unravel. On her sixteenth birthday, Miranda receives a mysterious gift: a small wooden box containing a needle and spool of gossamer golden thread, left behind by her father, which begins a chain of events that soon leave her life in chaos. Her pet cat is replaced with another, her teachers don’t have her on their roll call at school, even her closest friends forget who she is. When her mother vanishes into thin air, Miranda becomes desperate for answers. She follows clues to a meet a man known only as the Tailor. With his help, she must find a way to fix her life before it’s too late.
In my limited experience, books concerning time travel make my head hurt. The implications of even the most minute alteration to a time line; the paradoxes, well, you get the idea.
For the most part, this book was handled very well. Very firmly in the Young Adult realm, the characters are engaging and well described.
Towards the end, I did find myself feeling a little confused about precisely what was going on, and the manner of the ending left me feeling as though there ought to be more to come. I don’t, however, know if that is the case.
A decent debut.
I voluntarily reviewed a review copy of this book.
