Just another day in the DuBois household. Lollie believes she is a Queen. The legendary bird women of myths, the Sirens, flying about in the Garden, are having their issues with Babette. Thurston, spending most of the day in the library, is still captive in a prison of silence. The healer ladies of the Great House, as usual, are dispensing the sugar pills to be taken round the clock.
This was the way things were up until that day came.
The Day Before The Story.
In The Day Before The Story, (Book 1 of the series), a peculiar visit from an ancestor shook the world of the DuBois. Do not be fooled by the whimsical atmosphere or the dreamy pace. The world of the DuBois would never be the same again. This visit triggered a series of unusual events to take place. The fog that surrounded them was lifting. The sails were now set and a bizarre journey begins.
Times get twisted, secrets become revealed and strange truths are discovered about the rather eccentric DuBois. A disturbing family history will eventually unfold. A saga brimming with mysterious times, alluring places and eccentric characters waits to be explored.
Are you ready to find out what this mysterious and unusual family is all about?
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way—in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
