Summary

A delightfully adventurous debut from 14-year-old author, Raeann Gillberg
 
Peter and his family are visiting Petra, a very old structure carved out of a cliff in Jordan and one of the seven wonders of the world. But for Peter this is anything besides a normal family vacation. From Peter’s strange dreams to Lilly’s crazy theories, nothing seems to make sense. Will Peter look past what he thinks he knows and find something inside himself he didn’t know was there? Will he unravel the mystery of the Ageless Gem, or is it nothing more than an ageless bedtime story?

    'I can't see! It's dark everywhere. What place is this? Where am I?'Jeya was only four years old and was terrified as she tried to peer about the dark and gloomy temple. Between the pillars was a huge stone body. She shivered when she saw its face. This, she knew, was Kali, the goddess of death and destruction.Why was Jeya there? Who would leave a little girl in the dark like that? Certainly not the God of love - he sent a woman to rescue these children from destruction - Amy Carmichael. And she had been a little girl herself once a little girl with long dark hair, and deep brown eyes. Once she had even begged God to make them blue - but he hadn't. And as Amy leaned over to pick little Jeya up and rescue her from a life of temple-slavery - she was very glad that God hadn't listened to her prayers. Blue eyes were not the eyes of India - but Amy's brown eyes were.
