The Oak Island Affair is set during the ongoing, 217-year old, international, multi-million dollar treasure hunt off Canada’s east coast. Vanessa, a freelance writer who grew up in Spain, is fleeing the pain of an unraveling relationship when she goes to her grandmother’s house near Oak Island. Here her discovery of a 400-year old diary written by a failed Spanish Dominican monk rekindles her obsession with a treasure hunt that has drawn investors, including Franklin D. Roosevelt, from all over the United States. Battling time and the ruthless ambitions of a millionaire real estate developer who wants to turn Oak Island into a theme park, Vanessa is plunged into an underworld from which there is no turning back. Finally, seeing beyond the barriers of reason allows her to arrive at a new solution to the mystery.
The print edition of The Oak Island Affair was an American Next Generation Indie Book Awards finalist in both the Adventure and General Fiction categories.
