The beautiful thief wants to go straight. She secretly admires the clue’s author, freedwoman Justice Postell, who rose above the horrors of slavery to build a new life in Ohio. According to family lore, Justice left South Carolina at the dawn of the Civil War. Heavy with child, she carried untold riches on her journey north. As Birdie searches for the treasure, she begins to believe a questionable part of the story: a tale of love between Justice and Lucas Postell, the French plantation owner who was Birdie’s ancestor.
If the stories are true, Justice bore a child with Lucas. Some of those black relatives might still live in town. Birdie can’t help but wonder if she’s found one—Liberty’s feisty matriarch, Theodora Hendricks, who packs a pistol and heartwarming stories about Justice. Birdie doesn’t know that an investigative reporter who has arrived in town will trip her up—as will her conscience when she begins to wonder if it’s possible to start a new life with stolen riches. Yet with each new clue she unearths, Birdie begins to discover a family history more precious than gems, a tradition of love richer than she could imagine.
Treasure me is the first book i have read and completed in a while,
Life has been so hectic latley, i have had hardly any chance to do
anything, it seams to be the same for all my friends too, maybe it is
just that time of year in Australia.
Anyway back to the novel.
Christine is a brilliant writer, she has a nack of writing that i just
felt like i was the characters. She just has a way of making them seam so
human, insane right? ;)
The Novel was fast pased and full of actions with Bridie and her petty crime filled
ways and her disire to end it has a massage that every one can learn from.
I absolutly love Therodora, omg, this character rocked, i could see my self in her so much!
Nice nature, until you anger me, but lets hope you guys never have to witness that, hehe.
This is a great story, Thank you Christine for letting asking me to read this. I cant wait
to see what else you come up with!
