Claire Trowling is on a quest. After receiving news of her sister Becca's abrupt disappearance, Claire must piece together the shadowy remnants of a past she's long forgotten in order to find her. A cryptic note scrawled in Becca's handwriting leaves more questions than it answers: "Something both terrible and wonderful has happened. I can't explain now..."
When a stack of mysterious letters bound by a rare necklace is found, Claire heads to England--the source of the heirloom--for answers. With the help of a rectory gardener she remembers from her childhood, Claire races to discover the secrets that hold her family captive. Suspenseful and full of intrigue, Skizzer takes readers on a transcontinental hunt for answers weaving seamlessly between the distant past of childhood and the urgency of the present.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 15, 2007 – When Claire Trowling s sister Becca vanishes from her home and leaves her husband a note telling him not to worry, Claire embarks on a search that takes her to old family sites in North Carolina and England. As she seeks her skizzer (childhood lingo for sister) and uncovers pieces of the Trowlings family heritage, including a famous pendant with sacred significance, Claire rediscovers her Christian faith and begins to understand long-cherished family secrets. This debut novel from Kiesling is a quick and engaging read, with well-described settings and a sweet romance. However, the writing suffers from abrupt transitions between and within scenes. Becca s reason for her sub-rosa departure is never quite convincing, with too little backstory about Becca s husband. Readers may finish the novel wondering what purpose was served by all of Becca s melodrama. Still, this plot hole is outweighed by the novel s strengths, which include an adventurous story, a compelling protagonist and thoughtful musings on the real meaning of sisterhood.
