The Copper Box

By Suzanne J. Bratcher


Jerome, Arizona: the largest ghost town in America
Antiques expert Marty Greenlaw comes to Jerome to face the horror that haunts her dreams: Did she kill her little sister twenty-two years ago? Historian Paul Russell is in Jerome to face his own horror: Was the car crash that killed his wife his fault? Their lives become intertwined when an old lady dies on a long staircase in a vintage Victorian house. As Marty and Paul search the house for a small copper box Marty believes will unlock the mystery, accidents begin to happen. Someone else wants the copper box, someone willing to commit murder to get it. As Marty and Paul face the shadows in the house and in their lives, they must learn to put the past behind them and run the race God is calling them to.

Book Takeaway:

God forgives us whatever we have done. God wants us to let go of the past, reach for the future, and run the race set before us.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wrote this book because I believe all of us carry regrets we have a hard time letting go of. I wanted to show two characters with very different regrets learn to accept God's forgiveness and moved forward. A ghost town, Jerome, Arizona, was the perfect place to face the past and let it go.
