Treasure for Debby

By Amy Wentworth Stone
Level 9

“Where thy treasure—there thy heart.” Carved on a beautiful wooden sea chest made long ago by her great-grandfather, these words are read countless times by 18-year-old Debby Stebbins as she fills the chest with her drawings. Debby dreams of attending art school, but, though she and her sister live in a grand mansion filled with exquisite artwork and valuable heirlooms, the household finances are sadly lacking. When a handsome visitor tells Debby of a potential art scholarship, she begins a quest to secure the additional money she needs, and Debby and her aunts must decide if they should sell their prized possessions. Treasure for Debby is the delightful story of a young woman who learns powerful lessons about relationships, trust, and love; and along the way, she discovers some of life’s true treasures.
