Sydney Endicott, an American college student, needs a change in her life. But what? Then, bang, it happens! Sydney is lured to Europe by a job ad in the newspaper and a mystery involving a jeweled crucifix that once belonged to a colorful king.
But Sydney gets more than she bargained for. Unbeknownst to her, during the Middle Ages, Augustinian monks bequeathed the crucifix to a Holy Roman Emperor to ensure the prosperity of the empire. Thieves stole the treasure and were later found dead. Ludwig II, Bavaria’s fairy-tale king, discovered the crucifix in one of his fanciful castles before suspiciously drowning in a lake the depth of a kiddie pool. With his death, the cross was lost to the ages. History suggests the crucifix is cursed, but the spirit of the adventure only makes this college student more determined to find it.
Sydney’s new life seems like a zillion miles from the one she left back home. What young woman could ask for more than exploring medieval castles, sipping wine from the Rhine, indulging in authentic strudel and Black Forest cherry cake, soaking in curative baths founded by Romans, and strolling cobbled lanes once trod by Teutonic knights? Learning the language, however, is perhaps as much a challenge for Sydney as sleuthing out an ancient crucifix.
The journeys of Sydney Endicott are sure to get you off the couch and following in her footsteps.
