When a stack of mysterious letters bound by a rare necklace is found, Claire heads to England--the source of the heirloom--for answers. With the help of a rectory gardener she remembers from her childhood, Claire races to discover the secrets that hold her family captive. Suspenseful and full of intrigue, Skizzer takes readers on a transcontinental hunt for answers weaving seamlessly between the distant past of childhood and the urgency of the present.
When Claire Trowling gets a call from her brother-in-law, Rainey, saying that Becca, the sister she has both adored and resented since childhood, has disappeared, she knows that something must be wrong. Desperate for answers, she looks in a childhood hiding place and discovers a recently written note addressed to her. Something both terrible and wonderful has happened, Becca has written. Claire and Raineys determined journey to find out why Becca would so abruptly leave takes them to the lush English countryside Claire and Becca had visited as children, where an heirloom of unknown value provides a valuable piece to the puzzle of events. Through meetings with old friends and long-lost relatives, Claire and Rainey begin to discover that theirs is a family where things are not as they have seemed for years, and that secrets run deep. But will these secrets change everything?
In the course of the story, Claire finds her heart being drawn once again into a trusting relationship with her heavenly Father, and she learns the value of being open to meeting with Him.
