About The Ten Thousand Doors of January
“A gorgeous, aching love letter to stories, storytellers and the doors they lead us through…absolutely enchanting.”
–Christina Henry, bestselling author of Alice and Lost Boys
LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSELLER!
In the early 1900s, a young woman embarks on a fantastical journey of self-discovery after finding a mysterious book in this captivating and lyrical debut.
In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place.
Then she finds a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page turn reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own.
Lush and richly imagined, a tale of impossible journeys, unforgettable love, and the enduring power of stories awaits in Alix E. Harrow’s spellbinding debut–step inside and discover its magic.
About Alix E. Harrow
Alix E. Harrow has been a student and a teacher, a farm-worker and a cashier, an ice-cream-scooper and a 9-to-5 office-dweller. She has lived in tents and cars, cramped city apartments and lonely cabins, and spent a summer in a really sweet ’79 VW Vanagon Westfalia. She has library cards in at least five states.
Now she is a full-time writer living with her husband and two semi-feral kids in Berea, Kentucky. It is, she’s very sure, the best of all possible worlds.
