The story begins in the 1600's and centers around a very famous Elizabeth . She is gifted a mirror and pearl that would be the downfall of generations of her bloodline and almost all who had anything to do with them. In present day a woman called Holly gets a phone call from her niece saying that Holly's brother Ben has vanished and she is in need of help. From here we almost work backwards in learning all about Elizabeth's life as well as Holly's family history .
If you are a fan of Kate Morton like I am I think you would enjoy this story that goes back in forth in time while at the end bringing the two separate stories together combining love and heartache through the centuries as well as a crippling curse. Beautiful and tragic!
