Her childhood had been a lie. Her father had been a thief. Her mind struggled to absorb these facts, to analyze, to accept. Kate Powell had been orphaned at an early age, when she had, essentially, watched her parents die. Her family had been taken away, but she had been given another. The distant kinship didn't matter to Thomas and Susan Templeton. They had taken her in, raised her as their own, given her a home and love.
Now, 20 years later, she has learned the truth from a colleague of her father. A man who did not realize that the Templetons had gone to great lengths to protect the child from knowledge that would hurt and shame her.

Nice example of Nora's earlier work. I like the diversity of the characters and the storyline is humorous and believable. Worth the listen.
quite disappointing for a book by Nora Roberts, especially after reading `The Witness'. Boring story and such horribly affected voice
Nobody can be as bad as Sandra Burr. The worst female narrator I've listened to from Audible. Reminds me of primary school concert performances
I love Nora Roberts and would have enjoyed the story better if the narrator was different. I really don't like her voice and will not complete the series because of it.
Read the book, skip the audio.
You want to get Kate to relax, you want to get her to realise that life can be easier, especially if you have the support system she has.
But again, you have to read and you have to see how it ends and then you just HAVE to read the 3rd book because now you need to know if they find the treasure!
