I enjoyed the book, also because I have an interest in art like Debbie. Her sister, Polly, was an excellent character to the book and I liked the loving relationship between the sisters. The ending was rather predictable and I wish there was more descriptive writing, but other than that I give this book a definite thumbs up.

We enjoyed this book. It was a fun, interesting way to learn that relationships are of paramount importance. My daughter and I loved Polly, Debby’s younger sister. She brought playfulness and a sweetness to the story. I recommend this book!

This book has some great themes, selflessness, forgiveness, and a little mystery and romance that is touching without being inappropriate. Enjoyed reading this so much!

“Where thy treasure—there thy heart.”

Carved on a beautiful wooden sea chest made long ago by her great-grandfather, these words are read countless times by eighteen-year-old Debby Stebbins as she fills the chest with her drawings. Debby dreams of attending art school, but, though she and her sister live in a grand mansion filled with exquisite artwork and valuable heirlooms, the household finances are sadly lacking. When a handsome visitor tells Debby of a potential art scholarship, she begins a quest to secure the additional money she needs, and Debby and her aunts must decide if they should sell their prized possessions.

Treasure for Debby is the delightful story of a young woman who learns powerful lessons about relationships, trust, and love; and along the way, she discovers some of life’s true treasures.
