The first in the newly repackaged Kensington Chronicles series, The Hawk and the Jewel sweeps readers from the tapestried halls of Victorian England to the alabaster courts of Arabia. For years Lord Gallagher's family thought Sunny had perished with Lady Gallagher in storm-tossed seas off the Arabian coast. Unknown to them, the beautiful violet-eyed toddler has been found and taken to the palace of Darhabar, where she was raised as the ruler's own child. Now the emir, Ahman Khan, had contacted the family and asked them to send a ship for her. Why after all this time? And what of the mysterious gift he had sent with her? Brandon Hawkesbury, friend of the Gallagher's and appealing young captain of the vessel, gazed at Sunny as she came aboard. It would not be easy for the restless girl to accept a new life...a new family...a new faith. Brandon put aside these thoughts as he turned his ships toward sea. For now, Sunny was going home. What lay ahead was in God's hands.
