Shattered by constant mental abuse, an ugly duckling with an eidetic memory accidentally murdered her parents on her sixteenth birthday - a bittersweet tragedy that plunges the course of her life into a never-ending spiral of loneliness, alcoholism and bitterness while presiding over the residents of the orphanage her family estate has become.
But Sadie Wallace unwittingly receives the ultimate opportunity to change everything when an inexplicable celestial occurrence happens over Scotland, bringing with it a charismatic young couple that never seem to age.
Secretly residing in a fantastical castle on Mouse Island from where it disappeared in the 16th century, now fully-loaded with alien technology and occupied by an outrageous flower species, the MacGregor's are back to mastermind the latest incarnate of their son - Archie's destiny to complete a series of bewildering tasks that'll free them all from an ancient family curse - not easy when dealing with a sarcastic, iniquitous being that even their know-it-all companions, a species known as 'The Unpronounceables', have no knowledge of. With absolutely no idea of how to time-travel, the secrets of which are closely guarded by the law of a galactic community that detest an unsuspecting humanity, no one said it would be easy.
But it's not only Sadie who changes beyond recognition as the past becomes irrevocably altered; caught up, in search of acceptance, family and even love, so too, as parallels intermingle in the chaos of 'the butterfly effect', does a motley crew of irascible but delightfully droll characters.
