When someone asks Kate Dana, a factory worker from Desoto, Kansas, for a moment of her time, she falls into her very own OZ, only without any flying monkeys.
Kate is presented with a mysterious gemstone that transports here into the world of Agan. Things in this strange land are not only backwards but she seems to have stepped back in time.
Determined to get home, she uses the stone to transport her back to Kansas, only to find she has brought not only herself home, but a couple unwelcome guests from the world of Agan. Notably, one Andrew of Banaby manor, her least favorite person.
When her brother steals her gemstone, she is stuck with her new guests and feathers fly.
She and Andrew must eventually set aside their differences, to not only get him home, but find a way to cure a plague, and fight the war she caused in Agan.
