"During World War II, the threat of bombing causes many people to flee London for the safety of the countryside. Among them is 12-year-old Cecily, who (along with her mother, her brother Jeremy, and a fellow evacuated child named May) moves into Heron Hall, her Uncle Peregrine's old country manor. Uncle Peregrine entertains the children with a dark, historical tale of two young, imprisoned princes, but it's not until Cecily and May discover two unusual boys in the ruins of a nearby castle that the chilling truth behind Uncle Peregrine's story begins surface. Past and present collide in this mysterious and quietly suspenseful read."
