A road trip into the Ozark mountains with her new stepfather leads Melissa to the Boone docks, where the Boone family has lived for a hundred years. She is told stories of the infamous Hatfield and McCoy feud, and learns firsthand about outhouses, long-legged spiders and Bluegrass music. But when her mischievous cousins prepare their "special" sassafrass tea for her, Melissa (or Missy, as she prefers) is transported to an unknown place with a castle, a dragon and a handsome, yet peculiar, earl with a Scottish accent. She tries to dismiss this strange dream just like so many others she has had, until an encounter with a dusty old Celtic harp turns her world upside down.
