Synopsis: The Magic Manuscript: Voyage to Eve Ilion

Two teenagers, Arthur and Jennifer, unearth a medieval manuscript in Cornwall, in modern England, during the Christmas holidays. While reading the manuscript, Jennifer becomes engrossed in the story of fifteenth-century Lady Genevieve, a sixteen-year-old Cornish girl who escapes from her brother when he tries to marry her to one of the earls of Tudor against her will. Jennifer is, in reality, catapulted back to the fifteenth century, as well as to England in the sixth century. When Arthur realizes she is missing, he follows her back in time.

Synopsis: The Magic Manuscript: The Nine Companions

Four friends are inexplicably catapulted back in time—but to different places and different eras. In New France (Quebec) AD 1677, Lance and Bronwen, befriended by Inha and his beautiful sister, Wind Song, learn of the legend of an ancient silver amulet buried on Cacouna Island by a Micmac well.

Jennifer and Arthur find themselves in ancient Sumer over five thousand years ago—and in trouble. Kidnapped by the evil Sheik Faizi, they discover their only hope of escape is to steal his golden amulet. The two amulets are somehow connected, but how? Can any of the companions deliver them to the beautiful and powerful Lady Eve on the island of Eve Ilion? And if they succeed, will they be able to return home?
