What came next was the biggest adventure in Maggie's life. Her experience as an actor landed her a job in the summer stock company of the Crossroads Theatre, housed in that same white barn, but none of her professional credits could prepare her for the magic that happened on this stage. Or for the theatre's unorthodox staff, especially its moody and mysterious director.
That staff and stage will soon become family to Maggie, but all the magic in the world might not be enough to keep them safe with threats ranging from interfering board presidents to imprisonment in the realm of Faerie....
