About the Book
Family ties are fragile. A telegram informing Millicent Sherman of her brother Caleb Powell’s death and his bequeath of Powell Imports to his only child comes as a shock. Sondra, his daughter, has been Millicent’s to nurture for over twenty years. With no contact to her father, Sondra has denied her relationship with him: “I don’t have a father – he gave me away when I was a toddler. Let his Jade have it.”
Siu Lu, Caleb’s 10-year-old adopted child, has lived in California where he could monitor her care under Gem Chang, a Chinese-American woman who Millicent embarrassingly mistakes for his mistress.
Sondra, for Millicent’s sake, relents and travels to California for her father’s memorial. As rumors of a priceless jade given to Caleb hover in the air; no one is aware the jade specter will alter all their lives forever.
Will love, abduction, and death draw them closer in Caleb’s memory? Or alienate them forever?
