Based on the real - life history - mystery of the missing star from the Star Spangled Banner

Set during the War of 1812:

In the fall of 1809 Grace Wisher, a young slave girl, escapes the plantation to live her life in the port city of Baltimore, Maryland. She is indentured to Mary Pickersgill who teaches her the skill of sewing flags and standards. Yet Grace is hiding a terrible secret, one men will murder for even hundreds of years later.

In the present, Keiko Zorben is finishing her master's degree by working as an intern at the Smithsonian Institute. While archiving mislabeled letters, she finds a clue to the whereabouts of the missing star from the Star Spangled Banner. For over two hundred years its location has been a real-life mystery, until now.

Keiko asks the handsome Dr. Julian Lone Wolf, the head of the American Indian Studies Department, to join her on her search for the missing star.

When a docent is murdered and an attempt is made on their lives, Keiko and Julian realize finding the missing star and the secret it holds, is their only key to survival.

Meet the Author

Lisa Grace's Angel Series, "Angel in the Shadows, Book 1", and "Angel in the Storm, Book 2" are in development for a major movie through Motion Picture Pro Studios, which has been involved in five Academy Award winning films including: "Fargo", "Shakespeare in Love", "Life is Beautiful", and "The Usual Suspects."
Lisa Grace lives on the waterfront along the West Coast of Florida with her husband and daughter.
Look for her second book in her Real-Life History - Mystery line to be released in early 2014, "True Treasure" about the missing Devonshire Treasure and the pirate Bloody Graham.

Okay, now for the real Lisa Grace: She loves endangered Gopher Tortoises and keeps a cooler in the back of her trunk to rescue them. DO NOT THROW THEM IN THE WATER, they will drown. Hold them far away from your body as you pick them up as they tend to pee (a lot) when frightened.
Lisa's favorite pet was a full sized American Virginian Opossum. Instead of playing possum, she recommends playing with possums. "As our only native American marsupial, they deserve more respect than an open hunting season on them with no bag limit. Do people really still eat opossums?"
Favorite Poem: If you have labored long and your rewards seem few, remember that the mighty oak, grew from a nut like you. Author Unknown
