When her mother becomes critically ill on Oahu, thirteen-year-old Abigail Kendall must travel with sister, Sarah, and friends Luke and Kini to California to escape the disease. But upon arrival at Luke's Aunt Dagmar's, they can tell they're not welcome. Because gold has just been discovered near Sutter's Mill, the children strike out for the fields, hoping some "quick money" will provide a doctor for Ma and a permanent home for the Kendalls. But all isn't easy in the goldfields. The work is hard, Luke gets "gold fever", and they hear rumors of children being kidnapped. Then Kini and Sarah disappear! As Abby searches desperately for the missing children, she discovers that God knows the desires of our hearts -- and never deserts us.
Set in the South Seas during the 1840s, Abby, her family, and her best friend, Luke, find themselves on adventures complete with pirates, volcanoes, and Komodo dragons. Through these adventures they learn that God is faithful, he always keeps his promises, and he is always watching over them.
"Quest for Treasure" takes Abby and Luke back to Hawaii on a search for hidden treasure in order to save the family ranch in California. They encounter Jackal, the pirate, along the action-packed quest. Readers will discover there is a God-given treasure within everybody.
