Adeleigh and her brothers were designed with certain special abilities. Let's just call them gifts. Somehow they, along with their dog Scout, manage to accidently fall into a Spring Pool of Time and Space travel which brings them to the ancestral home of their father in the French countryside of Normandy. Here they meet a kindly old French gentleman who just so happens to be their great grandfather. In their own time, he died before they were ever even born. His summer home, Les Hiboux, holds many secrets and while on their accidently journey to the home of their forefathers, their father's grandfather leads them to the ruins of a medieval castle that crumbles gracefully under the weight of centuries worth of old vines and cow poop. After hearing the tragic story of the children who are among the last inhabitants of the castle, Adeleigh, Henri, Pier, and Aidan spend the winter trying to return to Les Hiboux... but further back in time. They want to rescue the kids from a terrible fate brought upon them by an evil uncle!
