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 1929 about the body of an infant found floating in the Savannah River. The necklace’s charms tell the story of three friends during the 1920s—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. Download and start listening now!

    " This was the second Karen White book that I read, and I'm pretty sure it's my favorite. I could not read it fast enough - I needed to find out what happened! Excellent book with mystery wovent throughout. "

    " Dreadful. If the book hadn't been so terribly long, I could have looked past the many annoyances, but as it was, I had way too much time to dwell on just how bad it was. The whole book was incredibly melodramatic--way too much present day drama about a mystery that happened seventy years ago. I can see being interested in the past, but really, it was seventy years ago, so please stop fainting and gasping, and falling into each other's arms at the shock of it all. It was also extremely predictable, and yet somehow the characters, given the same clues the reader is, are unable to see the obvious. It is painfully slow to watch them discover the truth. There was also way too much metaphorical talk of gardens and horseback riding. The final twist at the end was completely unnecessary and was disgusting to me, as a mother. Just one problem after the other in this book. Would not recommend it. "

    " I enjoyed the theme of this book but it was a little plodding. The plot could have moved faster with some editing. It did make me think though; I know little of my grandmother's past & life and now would like to know much more and there is no one alive to ask. "
