Everything abruptly changes when a swim in the campus pond maroons her in a strange city, where she emerges beneath hazy skies in a polluted lake. She finds herself on the shores of Hearts City, a Wonderland metropolis where progress and power have led to ecological disaster. Alyce is taken in by rogue scientist Jack Spade – a quiet but brilliant man about to stand trial for his theories about the declining state of the environment and the hidden costs of the Queen’s program of rapid development. As Alyce strives to help Jack prepare his defense, can she unearth Hearts City’s lost history, befriend the rebellious youth of the underground, and face off against the Queen herself, all while struggling to come to terms with her feelings and her future? Alyces journey is equal parts Carrollian fantasy, love story, and cautionary tale – one that will appeal to fairy tale lovers of all ages.
