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!

My teenage daughter loved this book and its messages. It’s a really beautiful book, but probably one for kids who are used to more gentle, slow-moving but beautiful literature.

This story seemed sweet, but neither me or my high school daughter could ever make it through the book. The story line dragged too much for us.

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.

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!

Level 9

“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.
