: In four haunting stories, kindred souls reach out across time, space, and magical barriers to rescue and transform each other. In the first story, "The Spring," a boy finds a world beyond the one in which he was born. In "Touch and Go," an elderly man recalls how he and a girl from an earlier time changed and enriched each other's lives. In "Checkers," a ghostly presence holds the key to survival. And Melanie, "The Lion Tamer's Daughter," bravely ventures in to her own dark and mysterious past.
