From the Inside Flap

Weeks have gone by at the Little Cottage In Between since Adanta's sick father left on a mysterious quest to find the healing lake mentioned in the lore of the Cherokee. Since then a vistor has arrive, a man Adanta doesn't like--James or, as she's styled him, the Lean One. He claims to be her godfather, yet his attention is uncomfortably focused on Adanta's mother, Charlotte. One day, after witnessing the Lean One make a frightening incantation, Adanta finds that her mother has fallen under his spell, and he takes Charlotte away from the cottage. Left alone in a remote area of the Smoky Mountains, Adanta has no choice but to venture forth into the wilderness, in the hope of finding both her parents. To accomplish this goal, she must journey to Adantis, the secret home of the Hidden People deep in the mountains.

On her quest, Adanta finds many friends to help her along, but she also encounters untold dangers, not the least of which is the threat of the Raven Mockers--humans who are believed to take the form of birds and steal the remaining days of life from those who are hurt or ill. To protect herself, and potentially save her mother and be reunited with her father, will require all the strength and courage she can muster.
