Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item
Burrowing through the goldsmiths' quarters and hidden archives of London, Tokyo, and Istanbul, Katharine Sterne is on the trail of a ruby, diamond, and pearl brooch once worn by Queen Elizabeth I. Interwoven with the tale of her hunt is that of a pair of Iraqi Jewish brothers who traveled to London two hundred years earlier with fortunes made from an unearthed jar of priceless stones. Spanning two continents and six centuries, " The Love of Stones" follows three very different people, each consumed by the same desire--possession of the legendary jewel--which binds their stories together in an irresistible quest.
