After the death of their parents at the hands of a drunk driver, city-dwelling teenage brothers Christopher and James Janes are sent to live with their widowed grandfather in the remote Ozarks of Missouri. There, the brothers must learn to cope with the drastic turn their lives have taken and the unfamiliarity of their surroundings, as well as their grief. By some stroke of fate, there is one other person their age in the area: a girl named Kylie. She tells the brothers of a local mystery about a girl who disappeared one day in a nearby ancient cave used by Native Americans, and the three spend their summer together exploring it, eventually finding that there is still a bit of magic left in a world that seems bereaved of hope.Publisher Weekly ReviewerFollowing the death of their parents in a car accident, 14-year-old Christopher Janes and his 15-year-old brother James arrive in Pine Hallow, Missouri to live with their 72-year-old grandfather, Mathias Bones.

Chris and James adapt quickly to life in Pine Hollow, becoming fast friends with Kylie, who shares with them the town legend of the Niutachi Indian cave: a cave into which a young woman named Alena mysteriously disappeared, leaving behind only her shoes and a necklace.

The boys explore the cave while Bones is at a doctors appointment, and discover a window set in the cave wall that gives them access to past memories -- times when their parents were still alive. Each trip through the window seems to bring them closer to the mystery of Alenas disappearance, which had a dark impact on Kylies family. Very slow to get started, the narrative gains strength as James and Chris try to piece together the connection between their found objects and the memories they represent.

Most touching is Boness recollection of a past dance with his now deceased wife, and his subsequent refusal to taint that memory. Chris and James never really develop beyond their respectively bookish and athletic descriptions, but the engaging premise and mystery of the window is enough to propel the plot along. A few odd turns of phrase, such as well-knowing and pile down aside, this is a competent piece of magical fiction.Book 2: A Window in the DarknessA college student, Jack Wolfe, on the verge of dropping out school, recieves a mysterious message from his brother asking Jack to check on their parents in Pine Hallow,Missouri, a small and remote community that has all but disappeared over time.

Jack, along with his girlfriend Emma Creek, leave in search of answers on a task that will bring them to the very edge of sanity.Book 3: A Window in the Earth RevisitedAfter the sudden death of James Janess wife, James and his ten year old daughter head back to Pine Hollow. James has returned in a desperate search for the memories and magic that existed so long ago in order to reunite him with his lost love, all the while dealing with the nagging belief that he cannot raise his daughter alone.
