When five-thousand-year-old human bones are found at a
construction site in the small town of Woodsboro, the news
draws archaeologist Callie Dunbrook out of her sabbatical
and into a whirlwind of adventure, danger, and romance.
While overseeing the dig, she must try to make sense of a
cloud of death and misfortune that hangs over the project-
fueling rumors that the site is cursed. And she must cope
with the presence of her irritating-but irresistible-ex-
husband, Jake. Furthermore, when a stranger claims to know
a secret about her privileged Boston childhood, she is
forced to question her own past as well.
A rich, thrilling, suspenseful tale, Birthright
inspiring heroine, an intriguing hero, and a cast of
fascinating characters whose intertwined lives remind us
that there is much more going on under the surface than
meets the eye.
