Eight months ago, during the depths of a snowy winter, Alaric and Naia Underwood switched realities. Then in June, as floodwaters surrounded their two versions of the house called Withern Rise, they met again, and tragedy struck.
It's autumn now, and Naia is feeling haunted. She's seeing things that shouldn't be there, and an unseen hand draws her into a tangled forest, where she meets an Alaric who lives like a savage. Here, in this dying reality, are the answers to so many questions—if she can only reach the man who calls himself Aldous U.
Life-changing resolutions are in the air in the worlds of the Underwood See.

Michael Lawrence started his working life as a graphic designer and photographer and subsequently worked as (among other things) a television script reader, an antiques dealer, and a publicist for a traveling circus. He now writes full-time and currently lives near Stamford, England, some forty miles from the house in which he was born—the house he calls Withern Rise in The Underwood See.. From Booklist:
The plot thickens as the realities multiply in this stunning conclusion to the intelligent, well-crafted series that began with The Crack in the Line (2004) and Small Eternities (2005). Naia, now 31 and pregnant, is returning to her childhood home, an estate nicknamed the Underwood See, where she wants to raise her child. The story rewinds 14 years, and the central characters continue to cavort with chance and fate in a growing array of realities. In one, Naia is nearly raped by the leader of a group of wild and violent boys but escapes with help from Ric, that reality's version of Alaric. When some of the realities they inhabit threaten to end, mysterious Aldous devises a risky plan to save his young relatives, even if it means further change and adaptation for them all. Readers will be lost if they begin with this installment, but fans of the series will be riveted by the surprises and twists thrown their way again—true fans will start again at the beginning to pick up clues they missed the first time.
