Stealing the Hieland Jewels

In the year of our Lord, 1746, a fortune in jewels are stolen from a Scottish Lord fleeing the Hielands ahead of the British Army’s wrath. Secreted aboard a ship bound for the British colonies in America, the gems are smuggled onto a wagon bound for Williamsburg, Virginia…

In 2009, in a rundown Palladian Villa, near the Appomattox River, a skeleton that hasn’t been disturbed for over two hundred and forty years is found beneath the floorboards of the east wing. When sixteen year-old Emily Grace inadvertently touches a delicate finger bone of the skeleton, a vision explodes in her mind. A young girl in colonial-style clothing struggles with a man twice her size. The man slaps her and she falls, hitting her head on a stack of bricks. Em jerks her hand back in horror, struggling to rise as vertigo hits her with a vengeance. She staggers a few steps, collapses to the floor, and passes out…

 In Stealing the Hieland Jewels, Em and her boyfriend, Josh, are unwittingly whisked back in time to the eighteenth century.  As the teens struggle to save the life of the young girl from Em’s vision, their interference incurs the wrath of her would be assailant, Angus Blackburn, and inadvertently draws the teens into his obsessive search for a Scottish Lord’s stolen gems.
