A stolen artifact. A reluctant thief. An heir without hope.
Would you risk your future to protect the past?
Lara's run out of places to run and waits for the authorities to find her hiding within plain sight. She's taken refuge in the sleepy market town to await her fate. She carried an old man's hope from the safety of rural New Zealand, but who is its rightful heir?
Word gets around there's an archivist in town and Lara's persuaded to assess a recent discovery for the local museum. The ancient items were pulled from a hidden priest hole uncovered in the local church. Containing a record of the town's shameful history, they must remain secret.
As Lara reflects on more than the items' physical frailty she is brought face to face with her own sins. Sometimes the sad wreckage of another's legacy is reason enough to stop history repeating itself.
