Secrets: The Steamship Chronicles (Book One)

TTO Publishing

The Steamship Chronicles begins with Samantha Crill's attempt to reach the Continent where her ability to read the hearts and minds of machinery does not mean hiding from the law or a life sentence in an asylum. With the machines she encounters on the way crying out for transformations only she can perform, though, the careful plans quickly fall apart.

Nathaniel Bowden has his eyes set on captaining a steamship of his own, a distant horizon with the crew suspicious of his noble background and his position as cabin boy. He's willing and eager to win their approval through hard work while learning every aspect of the ship. Only the ship's engineer holds fast against his charms, denying him access to the mysterious chamber that holds their ailing steam engine.

When the engine draws Sam to it under the guise of a safe hiding spot, Nat's life becomes a lot more complicated while Sam must figure out how to survive without being seen or giving in to the engine's demands.

In an alternate Victorian Era where Naturals like Sam can harness the power of aether to transform conscious machinery, dangers surround the fugitive Natural and lowly cabin boy. Only honor and friendship can see them through.

Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture.

It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.

"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."

A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.

A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time.

A Wrinkle in Time is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.
