"To the man who loves art for its own sake," remarked Sherlock Holmes, tossing aside the advertisement sheet of the Daily Telegraph, "it is frequently in its least important and lowliest manifestations that the keenest pleasure is to be derived. It is pleasant to me to observe, Watson, that you have so far grasped this truth that in these little records of our cases which you have been good enough to draw up, and, I am bound to say, occasionally to embellish, you have given prominence not so much to the many causes celebres and sensational trials in which I have figured but rather to those incidents which may have been trivial in themselves, but which have given room for those faculties of deduction and of logical synthesis which I have made my special province.""
Hidden in the desert for nearly 2,000 years, a little-known scroll gives clues to the whereabouts of a hoard of fabulous, ancient treasures. But no one has been able to uncover the scroll's secrets. Until now. With the aid of Professor Peter Niven, Skye Belle and her brother Brandon set off on an adventure beginning in the deserts of Egypt. Peter believes he has the key to unlocking the riddle of the scroll - or as he calls it, the Copper Map. It is a journey that will take them through all of the beauty and dangers of the Holy Lands. But with such an awesome amount of wealth at stake, there are others who will do anything to lay hold of the treasure for themselves. Skye and Brandon are about to find out just how cunning and ruthless their enemies can be. And as they search for the hidden secrets of the Copper Map, the very trustworthiness of the bible is called into question. But Skye is determined. Not only does she want to discover the long lost treasure, she also wants to prove that the events recorded in the bible actually happened. She knows that the evidence is out there, all she and Brandon have to do is stay safe long enough to find it. *** Praise for The Lost Treasure of Persia *** "EXCELLENT" Christian Children's Book Review "Skye Bell is an adventurous and believable 3D character... It's a fast-paced ride for a young girl and her younger brother navigating an adult world and adult villains in search of lost treasure. A fantastic read!"
