AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The story of two young girls: Jo, a very modern teenager and Balyet, a beautiful girl-spirit of the mountains, who is frozen in time by an ancient curse and destined to live forever in terrible isolation. Her longing for a companion touches Jo, but her offer of friendship carries a deadly price.' (Source: Bookseller's site)
