They were the youngest children to live in the White House in over a century - Caroline just three and John Jr. a newborn when their father took the oath of office. Symbolizing the youthful vigor of the new administration, they won the hearts of the American people as they romped around - and under - their father's desk in the Oval Office. And when, three years later, Caroline kissed JKF's coffin and John Jr. saluted the passing bier, they were forever etched into the nations' collective heart.
We see their awkward adolescence, their sorrows at senseless losses in the family, their first forays into romance, their efforts to establish themselves as responsible adults, their happy marriages and Caroline's motherhood. And we watch in admiration as Caroline recovers from the untimely death of her beloved brother to assume the mantle of the Camelot legend.
This is a book that will tug at the heart-strings of all who remember fondly these two remarkable American offspring.

So begins an unplanned journey for Jason, one that won’t be easy. The Native American culture is even more foreign to him than the state of Washington. When he meets Crystal Clearwater, things come into focus, but Jason can’t tell if it’s his newfound knowledge of her culture or the girl herself. Things get more complicated when some of the bullies in her tribe don’t take too kindly to an outsider falling for one of their people.
Together, Jason and Crystal unearth artifacts that seem almost magical. They also stumble over human bones, the discovery of which opens up a whole lot of questions for the locals. As time passes, Jason needs Crystal’s help to make sense of it all. He also forges an unexpected bond with his Uncle Jake in the process. Maybe Washington isn’t so bad after all, and maybe treasure is not always buried in the ground.
