A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan is the untold story of the daughter King Midas turns to gold. King Midas has the gift of turning everything he touches to gold, but after his gift (or curse!) almost killed his daughter, he relinquished The Touch forever. Ten years later, Princess Kora still bears the consequences of her father's wish: her skin shines golden, rumors follow her wherever she goes, and she harbors secret powers that are getting harder to hide.
Kora spends her days locked up in the palace until a charming young duke arrives. Kora realizes that there may be someone out there who doesn't fear her or her curse. But their courtship is disrupted when a thief steals precious items from the kingdom, leaving the treasury depleted and King Midas vulnerable. But Kora has a unique ability to sense gold, and she is the only one who can track the thief down. Recommended for ages 13 years and older.
