Stella Park (Spark for short) has found summer work cataloging historical archives in John Stoneâs remote and beautiful house in Suffolk, England. She wasnât quite sure what to expect, and her uncertainty about living at Stowney House only increases upon arriving: what kind of people live in the twenty-first century without using electricity, telephones, or even a washing machine? Additionally, the notebooks sheâs organizing span centuriesâthey begin in the court of Louis XIV in Versaillesâbut are written in the same hand. Something strange is going on for sure, and Sparkâs questions are piling up. Who exactly is John Stone? What connection does he have to these notebooks? And more importantly, why did he hire her in the first place?
