Introduction

The New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels delivers a gripping tale of family, fate, and forgiveness.

When Piper Mills was twelve, she helped her grandfather bury a box that belonged to her grandmother in the backyard. For twelve years, it remained untouched.

Now a near fatal riding accident has shattered Piper’s dreams of Olympic glory. After her grandfather’s death, she inherits the house and all its secrets, including a key to a room that doesn’t exist—or does it? And after her grandmother is sent away to a nursing home, she remembers the box buried in the backyard. In it are torn pages from a scrapbook, a charm necklace—and a newspaper article from 1939 about the body of an infant found floating in the Savannah River. The necklace’s charms tell the story of three friends during the 1930s— each charm added during the three months each friend had the necklace and recorded her life in the scrapbook. Piper always dismissed her grandmother as not having had a story to tell. And now, too late, Piper finds she might have been wrong.

  "Another good Karen White book"by riegerd (see profile) 10/16/11

I like all her books and this one was no different. It had some dark stuff, but was good.

 
  "Great Story"by texas_trnado (see profile) 10/08/11

Family secrets GALORE! This book keeps a hold of you until the very end of the book! A story of inspiration and working through physical limitations and injuries.

  "The Lost Hours"by nbaker (see profile) 04/01/11

A wonderful tale about how pain affects our relationships, about looking at someone from the inside, the value of friendship, and the strength of heartstrings.
