The Ten Thousand Doors of January (2019)
In this enthralling and poetic debut, a young woman goes on a fanciful journey of self-discovery after discovering a mysterious book in the early 1900s.
January Scaller is a curiosity in a large mansion full of odd items. As the affluent Mr. Locke’s ward, she feels similar to the objects that adorn the halls: scrupulously maintained, generally overlooked, and completely out of place.
Then she discovers an odd book. A book with the aroma of other planets that tells the story of secret doors, love, adventure, and peril. Each page reveals inconceivable realities about the world, and January learns a story that becomes increasingly entangled with her own.
In Alix E. Harrow’s enthralling debut, a tale of impossible adventures, memorable love, and the enduring power of stories awaits—step inside and find its magic.
