When Iris, an accomplished oboist, plays the cor anglais for Arky’s troubled friend Matt, she opens the Pandora’s box of the instrument’s powers: the cor anglais transports Matt, body and soul, to another time and place. Matt’s “time voyage” to 1907 and the Carlisle Indian School is far from random. It is the time and place that might heal his destiny.
So begins the first time voyage, along with Iris’s epiphany that their mother has not met a tragic end; she is marooned in the past. It is this quest to rescue their mother that launches Iris, Arky, and their friends, Matt and Danny, on adventures to past centuries that transforms them in ways they never imagined.
But every odyssey has its Sirens, and the bewitching call of the past may have cast a spell on their mother. Who will make it home; who will find home in the past? Find out in the Blowback Trilogy, where the only way forward is back.
