Publisher's Summary

Some secrets should remain hidden....
Lucy Silver, new to town with her rich, heartbroken father, is doing her best to put on a brave face. Yes, she tells him, she's sure she will enjoy her new school and meet lots of friends. Yes, she will obey Peggy the housekeeper and not give her too much trouble. After all, slipping out to walk about town could hardly be considered trouble, even if one does find a mysterious gold key....
Some locks should never be opened....
She tries not to notice how strange her father has been acting, how hopeful, how excited, how desperate. Not to mention the covert meetings with a mysterious stranger, full of promises and uneasy tidings. "We're close," the stranger says with a smile. "Very close now."
But some roads must be traveled....
Too late, Lucy realizes the object of her father's hunt: the gold key. Pursued by a wicked witch and a band of thieves out of town and into the forest, Lucy must somehow find a way to bring the key back to her father before it is too late. But as she discovers its mysteries, she wonders: Should it even be used at all?

Takes you away!

Takes you away to a whole other place! You'll get lost in the description of imagery and people and places you meet along the way! Lots of fun characters with shining personalities!
