Short-listed for the 2004 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Novel



After her marriage breaks down, shy schoolteacher Blithe Morrison takes refuge for the summer with her parents in the affluent Toronto neighbourhood of Rose Park. Blithe's return home evokes memories of her lifelong sibling war with Noel, her golden-boy older brother, now a diplomat posted in England. But when Blithe befriends a lonely 11-year-old girl and takes on a local history project, she uncovers truths about a long-rumoured buried treasure that forever alter her perceptions of her family, her friends, and herself.



Historic homes, ravines, and family secrets all figure in The Glenwood Treasure, a curl-up-and-enjoy novel that updates the traditions of such suspense classics as Josephine Tey's Brat Farrar and Daphne DuMaurier's Rebecca.
