Description: "How dit it go again?" asked Rebecca.

"Once upon a time", said Jane.

So begins a richly imaginative tale of childhood fantasy that marks author Pete Marlowe's debut in the childrens literature world. Here is a fresh new approach to storytelling that radiates originality. In his spare yet captivating prose, Marlowe takes us on a journey into the world of Rebecca and Jane, two sisters who recall the life they led before the hand of nature changed their world.

Once four identical princesses lived a wonderful life in a grand kingdom, until the day an enormous earthquake shook the land to its very roots. Everything shook so hard, infact, that time itself shook with it. The two princesses were tumbled out of their bed with their mother close behind, into a great hole that opened in the ground. They were shaken through time and space, through Ancient Egypt and the Wild West, to fall at last into the backyard of a trailer park.

Only Jane and Rebecca remember the story, because their mother bumped her head when she landed and forgot that she was queen in a faraway land. The sisters know the two other girls who look just like them have mounted the royal coach to search through time and many lands to find their sisters, the lost princesses. In the meantime, Jane and Rebecca keep their past well hidden.

One day, on their way to the school bus, they meet a wise old woman who recognizes them for what they truly are: princesses from a distant land, unwittingly transported by an earthquake. She reveals to them an important secret: there have been many earthquakes throughout the age, and with each one other princes and princesses may have suffered the same fate as they. Some, too, may havebumped their heads, just like Rebecca and Jane's mother, so that they do not even realize they used to be royalty in another time and place. More importantly, just because they can't recall anything doesn't mean they should be treated differently than they were before the earthquake struck. For the rest of the day, Jane and Rebecca look at their classmates with wonder and curiosity, trying to guess who else among them is royalty.
