Summary: History, fantasy, and mystery combine in this fictional account of the catastrophic Cloquet Fire and its aftermath, a story woven against the small northeastern Minnesota town's genuine concerns over World War I and the escalating Spanish flu epidemic. Lisa Hanson falls asleep in present day Cloquet, and awakes up to find she's been transported back in time to Cloquet on the day of the fire. Everyone she meets thinks she's Liisa Maki, her grandma's oldest sister who disappeared that day and was never heard of again. Lisa, who was named after her great-aunt, has the benefit of hindsight, but is unable to do anything about the horrifying events that are about to take place. The one thing she can do is find out what happened to Lisa. By the end of her eye-opening journey into the past, Lisa not only solves that mystery, but receives answers to questions in the present that she didn't even know she had. - Back cover.
