A sealed room, a mysterious map, a dead girl's desperately penned journal... for Annalice, they lead to discovery - and danger...
Annalice Mallory, the sheltered daughter of a family of map makers, discovers the cryptic diary of her long-dead ancestor that includes a map of a mysterious far-off island.
Philip, Annalice's brother, sets sail for the island, lured by the promise of incomparable riches to be found. But when he doesn't return, Annalice sets out to find him -- and the secrets of the diary -- in a desperate journey that leads her through the worlds' most exciting outposts... and finally to the tropical islands of the South Seas, where she encounters heart-stopping peril, but also the promise of love.
