On a hot July afternoon, a worker at an Antietam Creek construction site drives the blade of his backhoe into a layer of soil ? and strikes a 5,000-year-old human skull. The discovery draws plenty of attention and a lot of controversy. It also changes the life of one woman in ways she never expected...

As an archaeologist, Callie Dunbrook knows a lot about the past. But her own past is about to be called into question. Recruited for her expertise on the Antietam Creek dig, she encounters danger ? as a cloud of death and misfortune hangs over the project, and rumors fly that the site is cursed. She finds a passion that feels equally dangerous, as she joins forces in her work with her irritating, but irresistible, ex-husband, Jake. And when a strange woman approaches her, claiming to know a secret about Callie's privileged Boston childhood, some startling and unsettling questions are raised about her very identity.

Searching for answers, trying to rebuild, Callie finds that there are deceptions and sorrows that refuse to stay buried. And as she struggles to put the pieces back together, she discovers that the healing process comes with consequences ? and that there are people who will do anything to make sure the truth is never revealed.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Archaeologist Callie Dunbrook must sift through and analyze not only the Maryland site where 5,000-year-old bones have been found, but also her own personal puzzle. Bernadette Quigley brings the independent and strong-willed Callie alive and delivers an authentic Southern accent for the older, tense Suzanne, the woman who claims to be Callie's real mother. Quigley's vocalization of many of the men is gruff, but she masters the difficult job of depicting Callie's sexy ex-husband, who is thrown back into her life. Musical interludes set the mood and mark the transition of cassettes. The rhythm flows comfortably, and the pacing of banter between the characters moves along smoothly. Well-developed characters and a professional delivery combine to keep the listener's attention. F.L.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine
