Publisher's Summary

On a hot July afternoon, a worker at an Antietam Creek construction site drives the blade of his backhoe into a layer of soil - and strikes a 5,000-year-old human skull. The discovery draws plenty of attention and a lot of controversy. It also changes the life of one woman in ways she never expected.

As an archaeologist, Callie Dunbrook knows a lot about the past. But her own past is about to be called into question. Recruited for her expertise on the Antietam Creek dig, she encounters danger - as a cloud of death and misfortune hangs over the project, and rumors fly that the site is cursed.

She finds a passion that feels equally dangerous, as she joins forces in her work with her irritating, but irresistible, ex-husband, Jake. And when a strange woman approaches her, claiming to know a secret about Callie's privileged Boston childhood, some startling and unsettling questions are raised about her very identity.

Searching for answers, trying to rebuild, Callie finds that there are deceptions and sorrows that refuse to stay buried. And as she struggles to put the pieces back together, she discovers that the healing process comes with consequences - and that there are people who will do anything to make sure the truth is never revealed.

What the Critics Say

"As in other delectable entertainments by Roberts, it is not the wild denouement but the pursuit itself - studded with scrumptious romantic encounters - that is the real dessert." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Surprise Surprise Surprise"

    I didn't like the voice of the woman who read the fanatic book. It was full of surprises and keeps you guessing. I really enjoyed this book.

    "Great story..."

    Love the all of the twists and turns that come and go throughout the story. Narrator is too slow but fast forwarding it did the trick.

    "Romance & Mystery"

    I discovered Nora Roberts by accident as one of her books (The Search) showed up as a recommendation. My stepmother asked me when I started reading Romance novels so I did a search and learned that the author is a prolific Romance novelist. Since then, I've read many books by Roberts & listened to many more. This book has just enough of both. The best I've listened to so far.

    "Great Book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Great romance & suspense!


    Have you listened to any of Bernadette Quigley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed BQ reading this book & The Three Fates. I'm not sure why other reviews of her performance are so negative. I don't always notice if a narrator is slow because I simply increase the reading speed on my Audible app.
