About the Book

A mysterious girl. A boy lost in history. And a desperate race against time. Welcome to Parchment.

Trading the exciting life of international travel for a sleepy Vermont town doesn't appeal to James, Kelly, and Ian Bailey-but as teenagers, they have little say in the matter. When their mysterious great uncle bequeaths his fortune to the family, their parents decide to give up the world of international business and takeover his antiques shop for a quieter life.

Just when the teens' lives in their new home-filled with blizzards, boredom, and bullies-can't seem to get any worse, it turns into adventure. Discovering a hidden room filled with strange drawings, they find themselves suddenly thrust through time into 1453 Constantinople.

Unfortunately for the Baileys, 1453 is the year the Byzantine Empire falls to the Ottomans. Constantinople is under siege, and living in history turns out to be much more dangerous than reading about it. Quickly the teens find themselves in a race not just to save their lives, but history itself. In the midst of it all, they meet Adara, a captivating Armenian girl who seems to have all of history on her side. What secrets does she possess?

More importantly, can the Baileys get home? Or will they be trapped in the fifteenth century forever?

About the Author:

Wes Davies enjoys a lifelong love of travel, adventure, mystery, and roaring campfire yarns.

Classically trained, and a self-confessed history geek, he's rarely happier than when he can wander museums and archaeological sites, sharing stories of statuary and stone with his family.

Now living in rural Wisconsin, he has, for the most part, settled down. He devotes his time to his family, his writing, and the exploration of history. Always at the ready to wander off the tour map, explore the unknown, and get hopelessly, gloriously lost in the worlds that were.
