Tracey Stephens thinks she has her life in order. She follows her passion and works as a museum curator in Danville, Virginia. She plays with Ginny Daniels, a television reporter new to the intricacies of a small Southern town. For the most part, Tracey's comfortable with her niche in a community based on ancestors and history. All's well until Tracey's great aunts resurrect a family legend best left unspoken--long missing Confederate treasure--that pits Tracey against Ginny.
Three generations of sisters are soon at odds over the family's so-called legacy. Tracey's discovery of the truth behind the legend leads her on an odyssey of Quaker tenets, Confederate gold and silver, the Underground Railroad, and the long-kept secret of a boondoggle that almost cost her father his life. Along the way, Tracey and Ginny learn that much in their lives is interconnected and most of it set in motion long before they were born. They find the true treasure of an old Southern family and each other.
