Going to stay with a bachelor Uncle on his house boat has got to be a dream come true for almost any child. When that boat can sail on the Sea of Time, as it does in the Drift House books, there as sure to be interesting developments. In the second volume of this series, The Lost Cities, Susan and Charles Oakenfeld once again learn the thrills and dangers of spending time on a seagoing mansion that not only has some peculiar features but seems to attract the unusual.

From official release/information:

Book Description: Returning for the summer to Drift House, their uncle’s seagoing mansion, Susan and Charles Oakenfeld find themselves separated when a tidal wave carries the house out to sea. Charles is stuck up a tree with a parrot and a mysterious book, while Susan and Uncle Farley are adrift in the house. As each attempts to track the source of the time squall that set the tidal wave in motion, it soon becomes clear that they are separated not just by space, but centuries. From the coast of Newfoundland, to the rocky shores of medieval Greenland, to the tumbling tower of Babel, Charles and Susan are in for much more of an adventure than they could have imagined, and whether or not they get home again is out of their control . . . (Young Adult)
