"The world of 12-year-old Meg Moore is turned upside down. No sooner has a comet streaked across the sky of seventeenth-century London than Meg is swept into a new life as she gains a stepmother and infant brother, the new heir to her father's estate. Through it all, Meg comes to steer a steady course as she finds her personal delight in plays, writing, and bookselling. Emily Gray brings Meg triumphantly through the tumult of this formative period. Initially distressed and resentful, Meg emerges determined and happy with both her place and her potential. Young adults will find this a thought-provoking look at the teenaged years of another time. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
