I'm kind of speechless after finishing this book but I'll try to do the best that I can.

This is a tale of redemption. Birdie, a thief, has known no life but crime, lies, and betrayal. While searching for her family's lost treasure, she discovers the small town of Liberty. Here she meets Hugh, a reporter who has a past in which he is ashamed and the rest of the quirky citizens of Liberty. Is the story about Justice hiding jewels real or an illusion? Even more important, can people really change?

I loved loved this book. I was emotionally invested the entire span of the book. For those of you who stop reading after five pages, you'll want to stick with this one until Berdie gets to Liberty, which is where the magic begins. While there is a treasure, this is a big mystery. This story centers around all of the different characters in the town of Liberty and unveils their life behind closed doors. I LOVED all the characters in the book and found them to be realistic and endearing. I was so invested in their individual stories. Berdie is thirty-one but she doesn't read that way to me. Her actions, thoughts, and feelings really made me think of a younger character. This isn't a negative but I am curious to what others think about this.

I especially loved how Birdie had to make choices and face the consequences of all of her decisions. There are no cop outs. I feel like this review is jumbled than most because there are so many things I loved about this book but I can't really tell why because everything is so connected.

I recommend this to those who love stories centered around small towns and enjoy stories of redemption. Especially when multiple people need it. I truly fell in love with the story of Justice and the town of Liberty.
