Orphaned inventor Douglas Hwan dreams of a world beyond the valley that houses his hometown of Rocan. When a traveller named Sky arrives from beyond Rocan's frozen borders, Douglas assumes she must be a Sequestered -- a woman whose family has kept her sheltered from the town's strict breeding laws. But when Sky's call for help brings the spaceship Oriana to her rescue, Douglas is forced to choose between his family and his dream.

Sequestered is an adventurous tale of dreamers, aliens, exploding engines, blended families, and finding one’s place in the world.
