"You can hear me," he said. "See me too. One of you has the gift."
“It’s about time,” Frank said, as he stood by the spiked wrought-iron fence that guarded the front yard. “I thought you’d chicken out,” he added with a smirk.

“You wish,” Kathy shot back.

In fact, it was Kathy Henley who wished she had chickened out. More than anything, Kathy is afraid of the dark and midnight whispers-the ones that only she seems to hear. So how did she get talked into ghost-hunting in the middle of the night with her brother David and with Frank, his obnoxious new friend?

Maybe if all they had found was a ghost, things would have been different. Instead, they found something else-or something else found them. That’s when everything changed.

Suddenly it’s 1879 and Boulder, Colorado, is no longer a thriving city but a small, dusty town filled with horses, mules, and wagons. With no food or money, and wearing conspicuously modern clothes, the trio has only a riddle to help them-a riddle no one can fully remember, no matter how hard they try, that warns of an impending doom. Drawn into the mountains toward the deep-rock mining camps, they scramble to solve the riddle . . . and find a way home.
