"In the town of Crystal Springs the return of the Appledore Family did not go unnoticed."

Ephraim moves with his family from Cambridge to a small town in Maine after his father suffers a stroke. The house is a scary old family mansion his mother inherited. The other kids at school are all smarter and stronger than him. Ephraim thinks he is going to hate this place, but then he hears legends of powerful water that can heal all ailments and even make people live forever. Can he find the water and save his father? Gradually he makes two friends who agree to help him search. This book weaves together the histories of three families and is actually more science fiction than fantasy. Try it if you are a fan of Tuck Everlasting or enjoy stories about science, exploration, and imagination.
