When Liana Robesons fourteen-year-old son doesnt show up at his father Cullen Llewellyns house, she knows that something is seriously wrong. And when she discovers that the Pearl of Great Price, a family heirloom, is missing too, she fears that the past is the cause of her current troubles.

At the turn of the century, Lianas grandfather, Tom Robeson, and his friend, Archer Llewellyn, worked many jobs in search of their dreams, and with the finding of a perfect, beautiful pearl, it seemed as if their dreams were finally within their grasp. But Archer became greedy and had no desire to share their prize. His actions cursed the holder of the Pearl of Great Price for all time.

Through the years, the pearl has changed hands many times and has always brought disaster with it. Now, Liana and Cullen need to unravel many mysteries to retrieve their true treasure, their son.
