About the Book

Childhood is supposed to be a time of carefree days and fun memories. But for some children, it also contains mystery, which they can spend a lifetime trying to solve.

Author Charlotte Woodham’s The Treasure of Bayou Reeve is the story of childhood friends Trey and Reeve. While playing in the woods around their childhood homes, eight-year-old Trey and twelve-year-old friend Reeve discover a murder and robbery—and a bag of jewels, which Reeve hides. More than thirty years later, Trey returns home to care for his aging father, with hopes of mending their damaged relationship. He brings with him a failed marriage, diminished self-worth, and bittersweet memories of a lonely childhood and lost friendship. His one fragile hope is that he might find the treasure. Meanwhile, as his relationship with his father worsens rather than improves, a mysterious dark-haired beauty arrives, and both men begin to change.

Sometimes what seems to be a treasure when we are children does not quite seem so important as adults. Follow the twist and turns of The Treasure of Bayou Reeve and discover Trey’s real treasure.
