Keys, they lock and they unlock. Let you in and let you out. They provide escape and they imprison.
The book Sarah's Key haunted me for several days, a key that could unlock and give life, instead it remained in the hands of one bound never to be able to turn the lock.
This book is also about a key, in the form of a clock, steam punk style.
When a fire consumes Meg’s home, killing her parents and destroying both her fortune and her future, all she has left is the tarnished pocket watch she rescued from the ashes. But this is no ordinary timepiece. The clock turns out to be a mechanical key—a key that only Meg can use—that unlocks a series of deadly secrets and intricate clues that Meg is compelled to follow.
Together with the handsome stable hand she barely knows but hopes she can trust, Meg is swept into a hidden world of deception, betrayal, and revenge, uncovering evidence of an elite secret society and a dangerous invention that some will stop at nothing to protect.
