Summary
A necklace that reportedly has the power to find gold serves as a link between Tara Fraser, a teen who is facing the angst of living with relatives and being the new girl in school after her home burns down, and Josey, a distant relative who lived in Tara's house over one hundred years earlier and fell in love with Asa Curry, a mysterious man who claimed to be a gold dowser
Summary
Tara is forced to move in with her cousins after her house burns down. She faces a difficult adjustment while her mother is away trying to earn money. Interwoven with this story is that of Tara's ancestors, who in 1859 were convinced by a mysterious stranger to put all their money into searching their property for gold
