William and Judy unite in a cross-country journey through Europe to find Judy's missing father after a storm ravages their town.
When a storm hits a small and sleepy town, it ravages every living thing.
But storms don't just destroy, they uncover. And when William discovers a mysterious object that has lay hidden beneath a centuries-old tree, he instantly knows that it's special.
What he doesn't know is that his unexpected find will unite him with a girl searching for her missing father and trigger a series of events that will see them stow away in a camper van, hurtle across countries and uncover what will undoubtedly be the most exciting adventure of their lives.
