The break-out literary novel from Michael Molloy, who has achieved great commercial success with his WITCH TRADE and TIME WITCHES books.
When Tim moves to his grandparent's village, everything seems mysterious. Why are there no flowers anywhere? Who is the weeping woman wandering through midnight streets? And what is the secret of the empty house on Falling Star Hill? The mystery deepens when Tim meets Sarre, a girl from another world. She leads Tim to the place she comes from--a magical, old-fashioned land connected to our own by falling stars, where flowers are guarded like treasures. It is there that all secrets will be revealed. And it is there that Tim will find his destiny.

its my favorite book. i love it because its funny, exciting, thrilling and at some points its its sad and hart stopping. i'v read it a few times but each time is like the first time. i would recomend it to eny one who enjoys a thrilling read. i realy want there to be a film or a second book.
this book is amazing, its a totally enchanting fantasy story -- and its so unique .. like most fantasy book now are take-offs from Harry Potter [whish is a great book] but this book is so different and unique - everything ties together. Its not a very popular book but once you read it, it'll be a favorite i promise!!!!!!!
Tim and Sarre are extraordinary characters that take you from rivers to giant trees and castles to battle grounds. This thrilling and adventurous book always has some way to spark curiosity about something in the story! Fantasy lovers will enjoy all 377 pages.
i was so engrossed in this wild fantasy, nothing mattered but to see what happened. it took me but two days to finish the book, and to be honest, i was dissapointed that there isn't a sequel. it definately earned the five stars i gave it! I can't wait to read all the other books by Molloy; he's a genius!
