"You are now entering Ruby Holler, the one and only Ruby Holler! Your lives are never going to be the same--"

"Trouble twins" Dallas and Florida are orphans who have given up believing there is such a thing as a loving home. Tiller and Sairy are an eccentric older couple who live in the beautiful, mysterious Ruby Holler, but they're restless for one more big adventure. When they invite the twins to join them on their journeys, they first must all stay together in the Holler, and the magic of the place takes over. Two pairs of lives grow closer and are changed forever. The story weaves in an interesting mix of mystery, adventure, and humor, along with age-old and modern problems.
