Description

Commended for the 2007 Canadian Children’s Book Centre, short-listed for the 2008 Red Maple Award
"You know how it is when you get a feeling that something big is going to happen? Well, it wasn’t like that for me. In fact, that Thursday started out like any other day."
With these words, Sarah Gilmore begins the remarkable story of what happened when she and her mother, Maggie, suddenly found themselves recipients of an unusual inheritance. A home of their own sounds too good to be true to the Gilmores, who have been struggling to manage on Maggie’s income as a waitress - but the conditions that come with the house are strange indeed. Then Sarah receives a message that she should look for a mysterious bequest in an old chest and her imagination runs to thoughts of jewels and wealth. She is disappointed when the chest seems to yield nothing of value - until she learns the truth about her legacy.
