The past, lies, and a pair of earrings may not be the only barriers between Adelaide Anson and the truth about her parents' deaths.

Adelaide still can’t shake the feeling that the fire wasn’t an accident. No one else seems to believe there may be more to the story; that is until a mysterious letter shows up confirming Adelaide’s suspicions. Lured by the promise of answers, Adelaide follows the letter and finds herself thrust into the world of the Red Rose Society, a secret order composed of the descendants of historical figures. If Adelaide wants to get into the Red Rose Society and gain the answers she seeks, she'll have to survive a trip to the past and outwit the other initiates before the clock runs down.

Crimson Time is the first book in an exciting YA fiction series that combines elements of history and time travel to tell the stories of women in the past. Young adults, as well as the young at heart, will be swept up in the past and carried into a world of secrets and lies.
