In 1985, Nancy Dunham, armed with a degree in Public Accounting, takes on a temporary position at The Thread Company. She is hired by bookkeeper Connie Sutton to pack the accounting records and personnel files for relocation, Nancy stumbles upon a hidden treasure—an old set of accounting ledgers dating back to the 1890s. As she delves into the records, she uncovers a shocking embezzlement scheme involving a bookkeeper named Nellie Buckingham from the era of the industrial revolution.

With her thesis in mind, Nancy becomes determined to unveil the truth hidden within the faded numbers of those historical ledgers.

Nancy and Connie, both surprised and strangely satisfied with their discoveries, embark on a journey that reveals not only the secrets of the past but also the power of connection and resilience.
