Set in Nova Scotia in both 1859 and present day this book tells two girls' stories on the same land. In 1859, Josey meets handsome Asa, a mysterious man with many secrets, including the secret ability to find gold on her family's farm. In present day, Tara is living with her cousin after her own house burns down. She discovers an heriloom necklace among her mother's old jewelry and finds that it has secret powers. She puts these powers to good use when she starts digging around her old farm for treasure. Meanwhile, Josey's fairytale romance turns sour when Asa and her father enter into business together. When the two disagree about what what their future dealings will be, Josey's father meets an untimely end. Overall, an engrossing read by a talented artist who can weave a strong story.
