Another book for the Daring Book Challenge.
This is a girls own adventure story and a bit of escapism. Vesper Holly is going on an adventure.
Following the death of her father, Brinnie and his wife Mary, are appointed as Vesper's guardians and it doesn't take long before Brinnie and Vesper sail to the country of Illyria, to search for a legendary treasure.
Good story that has adventure, archaeological mystery and the inevitable sides of good and evil.
