“Sarah Parsons has never been to Amber House, the grand Maryland estate that’s been in her family for three centuries. She’s never wandered its hedge maze or explored its secret attics; she’s never danced in its ballroom, or hunted for the diamonds said to be hidden in its walls.
But as Sarah, her brother, and their icy mother settle into Amber House, she finds herself drawn to both handsome Richard, who introduces her to a world of wealth and privilege, and intriguing Jackson, who dares her to find the diamonds. She discovers she can see visions of the mansion’s history—like her mother as a young girl, unimaginably warm and happy, or the cruel sea captain who lost the jewels long ago. Piece by piece, she uncovers the secrets of Amber House: its ancient crimes, and its fresh betrayals.
Where are the diamonds? Who caused her mother’s unhappiness? And what tragic act still echoes through Amber House? Sarah needs answers soon. Because when her visions threaten the person she holds most dear, she must untangle the web of the past before it traps them all forever.”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Kelly Moore wrote the beginnings of what would become AMBER HOUSE years ago, but it wasn’t until her daughters Tucker and Larkin Reed found the manuscript and convinced her to work on it with them that it became a full-fledged book. Tucker attends the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, while Larkin is a freshman at St. John’s College in Maryland. All three reside in historic Jacksonville, Oregon.
