An abandoned safe-box in a New York City bank is opened to reveal a treasure trove - a bundle of old letters, photographs and priceless jewellery, including a wedding ring and a locket. Court clerk Jane Willoughby is charged with discovering more about the mystery of the box's owner, the late Marguerite Wallace Pearson di San Pignelli. Jane is sad to think that these most precious possessions are to be sold off. Why did Marguerite never claim them? Had she no one to leave them to? After arranging for the jewellery to be valued, Jane and Christie's auctioneer Phillip Lawton are thrown together in a quest to find out more about Marguerite's story. But neither of them could imagine where the contents of the box could lead them ...or how it will change their lives forever.
A sweeping, romantic mystery: her most precious possessions are the clues to a secret that could change many people's lives.
