Overview

Vita Kirk is a travel writer who has never left her hometown. In fact, she rarely leaves her house. Due to deep wounds and bitter losses, Vita has chosen isolation over vulnerability. But when she stumbles across an antique chest in a hole-in-the-wall boutique, she discovers a puzzling link to her past and her physical surroundings mysteriously begin to change. Inscribed in the treasure chest are the words, "Love is the key that unlocks every portal."

The power of these words prove to unlock a part of Vita she thought had died years ago.

"Stories like this go by many different names-fantasy, time-shift, magical realism. Some are overtly Christian or religious in nature, others are not. But from a spiritual perspective, the common thread in all these works is the redeeming, transforming power of God's grace not only to alter the future but to change our understanding of the past."--Penelope Stokes

This book is almost a mix of realistic fiction and fantasy. It is about a woman who has a terrible life. She got a divorce, her sister git married to her ex husband, and her sister has always been the favorite. When she stops at an antique stor she finds herself attached to a small treasure box. When she buys it and brings it home she tries look for it on the computer but something goes worng. Her computer shows the woman a story of the box, how it came to be, and a young girls tragic life with the box. Read as you watch the woman have a new perspective on life and watch her grow.
