It should have been a short suspended-animation sleep. But this time Rose wakes up to find her past is long gone-- and her future full of peril.

Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now, her parents and her first love are long gone, and Rose-- hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire-- is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes-- or be left without any future at all.

Dianna Wynne Jones, Douglas Adams, mais aussi William Shakespeare ont change sa vie - tout comme sa decouverte des reconstitutions historiques, auxquelles elle a participe, tout de velours vetue, a jouer de la harpe en regardant des jeunes gens en armure de plastique se taper dessus. Elle passe un diplome d'orfevrerie, mais prefere se consacrer a l'ecriture. Elle vit maintenant dans l'Oregon avec sa mere, sa fille et son levrier irlandais.
