Twelve year old Jess is grieving over the loss of her beloved Great Aunt Edie. She is also worrying about the birth of her twin brothers. They are conjoined (Siamese), and everyone is concerned about them.
When Jess is given an old bureau (desk) from Aunt Edie’s, Jess doesn’t want it. She’d rather have the piano Aunt Edie taught her to play beautiful music on together.
But when Jess finds a strange glass flask hidden in one of the compartments of the desk, she is sure the swirling colours, baby’s breath breeze and howling noise she sees and hears is somehow linked to her brother’s survival.
A gentle, magical story about family, growing up and believing in something different.
