After her mother dies, fourteen-year-old Zoe is whisked away to Newfoundland to live with a father she has never met. In the tiny village of Port au Choix, she gets caught up in solving the mystery of finding the habitation site of the Maritime Archaic Indian, an ancient culture that lived in the area more than four thousand years ago. At the same time, Zoe has her own mystery to solve. Going through her mother's journals, she discovers secrets that baffle and confuse her. Could Zoe's life have been nothing more than an elaborate lie?
