Overview

Abby’s senior year of high school is going according to plan: good friends, cute boyfriend, and college applications in the mail. But when Dante Alexander, foreign-exchange student from Italy, steps into her life, he turns it upside down. He’s mysterious, and interesting, and unlike anyone she’s ever met before. Abby can’t deny the growing attraction she feels for him. Nor can she deny the unusual things that seem to happen when Dante is around. Soon Abby finds herself drawn into a mystery whose roots reach into sixteenth-century Florence, and she uncovers a dangerous truth that threatens not only her future but the lives of those she loves.

Fans of Stephenie Meyer’s books might be the audience for this supernatural, tortured romance. The plot takes an intriguing turn when it is revealed that Dante was an apprentice to Leonardo da Vinci and helped him build one of his inventions: a time machine."
—Booklist

"The Hourglass Door has everything: a heroine who is genuine, strong, and lovable; an interesting and compelling love story; gorgeous language, fast pacing, and an intricate and exciting plot. For readers who have been waiting for the next book to sweep them off their feet-this is it."
—Ally Condie, New York Times bestselling author

"In a time when copycats abound, Mangum has created a unique story with interesting characters and an intriguing plot. And because Hourglass centers on relationships, fantastical elements feel believable rather than, well, fantastical."
-Deseret News
