Sheila seeks Grandma's doll, but it has already been sold as an antique. When she enlists the help of a local antiques dealer to recover the doll, will she end up finding more than she bargained for? Kimber is intrigued by an old fishing tackle box and subsequently thrilled to learn the value of the lures inside. But will she be willing to sacrifice a chance at hapiness for money? Lauren cherishes a christening gown her great-grandmother wore - even though she has chosen career over motherhood. But when her husband leaves the city to buy a farm, will Lauren survive the new way of life forced upon her? Jessica takes an antique dresser from Grandma's attic and finds some old papers and photographs inside that lead her to a painful discovery about her past. Can she trust a stranger with what she learns about her family ties, or will she lose all she holds dear?

In first grade, Janet Spaeth was asked to write a summary of a story about a family making maple syrup. She wrote all during class, through morning recess, lunch, and afternoon recess, and asked to stay after school. When the teacher pointed out that a summary was supposed to be shorter than the original story, Janet explained that she didn't feel the readers knew the characters well enough, so she was expanding on what was in the first-grade reader. Thus a writer was born. She lives in the Midwest and loves to travel, but to her, the happiest word in the English language is "home".

Pamela Tracy started writing at a very young age (a series of romances, all with David Cassidy as the hero. Sometimes Bobby Sherman would interfere). Then, while earning a BA in Journalism at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, she picked up the pen again ("only"""this time, it was an electric typewriter on which she wrote a very bad fiction novel). First published in 1999 by Barbour Publishing, she has since published more than twenty-five books in multiple genres. She's a Carol Award winner (from American Christian Fictions Writers) as well as both a Carol and Rita finalist (from Romance Writers of America).
