Meet Samantha Beck and Rebecca Nisha - two women born 25 years and hundreds of miles apart, yet joined together by a shocking family ritual.
When Samantha discovers the remains of an ancient tribe in Pennsylvania, she expects to at last prove her grandmother's Native American ancestry and to make a name for herself as a budding archaeologist. She does not expect to make an enemy and a lover of a fellow descendant - son of Rebecca Nisha - who unwittingly wears a necklace made of his dead mother's bones.
As the story unfolds, alternating between Samantha's story and Rebecca's 25 years before, Samantha becomes more and more determined to discover the devastating mystery that estranged Rebecca's wealthy Pennsylvania Dutch father from her half-Native American son. Samantha gradually uncovers a troubling secret and decides to risk everything - love and career - to restore harmony to Rebecca's family.
