Another Great Read from Liz Johnson!

        "A Glitter of Gold"
            By Liz Johnson


Carter has been searching for the location of the wreck detailed in the worn pages of an 18th-century diary, the discovery of which could open the door to his dream job at a prestigious museum. But convincing Anne to help him fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle is no easy task. And working with Carter means that Anne will have to do the one thing she swore she'd never do again: trust a man.

Finding a monetary backer and sticking with a search that's turning up nothing will take all their dedication--and every secret they've tried to hide. If they can find the lost ship,  they may discover a treasure worth more than all the pirate gold in the world--love.

My Thoughts:

My expectations were high when I started to read this novel, as I have loved all the books I have previously read by this author. She has an outstanding talent as a storyteller, keeping one totally engrossed from beginning to end of her tales. And what a tale this is!!! What could possibly be better than a  story of a heroine, Anne, who directs pirate tours in Savannah , Georgia? Sounds mysterious and somewhat spooky, doesn't it?? Finding an artifact from a possible ship wreck , she decides she must find out what it is and what is it worth; Don't we all wish we could find a pirate's treasure???? This grabbed my attention and wouldn't let it go!! Carter, a museum director, enters the scene as Anne seeks answers. He also is following a quest of his own, searching for answers about a family diary that has been handed down many years. Could there be a connection between the two?? 

The characters in this book , were so realistically and well described that they drew me right into the story. I felt their every worry, concern, challenge and fear.  I walked alongside them in their rocky road of life. 

The plot developed at a somewhat slow pace, however there were unexpected twists and turns to keep the reader in suspense. 

A strong sense of God's power to bring healing and forgiveness comes through loud and clear. If only we allow Him, He will lead us in our path in life. 

This book was supplied by Revel, a division of Baker Publishing House. The opinions and thoughts expressed are honest and my own.
