“The Pearl Thief” by Elizabeth Wein

From #1 New York Times bestselling author and former 2015 TRCA nominee Elizabeth Wein comes an exquisitely woven novel. A prequel to Code Name Verity, Wein’s latest tells the tale of fifteen-year-old Julia Beaufort-Stuart who wakes up in the hospital only later to realize her injury might not have been an accident. Strange things are happening at her family’s ancestral home in Perthshire. In addition to her “accident” a respected London archivist goes missing, presumed murdered, and her family’s treasure trove of pearls is missing. Julie must get to the bottom of the mystery, not only to satisfy her own curiosity, but to keep her friends from being framed for the crime.
