Eleven year old Lori Daniels feels her life is boring. She longs for the excitement of the good old days that her grandfather has told her about. All she wants is to have an awesome adventure to write about in her diary.

Loriís hum-drum life quickly changes when she gets caught up in a race to save Roxbury, an old abandoned settlement near her home, from destruction by a large gravel company.

She soon finds herself involved in an intriguing mystery complete with chases on horseback, an elusive girl named Elizabeth, a hidden cemetery, and a series of puzzling coincidences that leave her wondering if what she has seen is real or imaginary.

Lori discovers, first hand, that some things just canít be explained.

What is peace? To each one of us, it is something different.  You might think of it as a bell that you can ring so all the world can hear it, or a special gift to open with care. Or is peace a candle that we light at night to keep the darkness away?
