Wilkie Collins, a contemporary of Charles Dickens, has written a wonderful mystery. The Moonstone, a rare yellow diamond, journeys from India through Europe something sinister following in its wake. We first encounter this beautiful gem at birthday party. Rachel is enamored of her gift and quite beside herself the next morning to find it stolen. Who stole the Moonstone? Was it someone in the house? Who are the mysterious Indians? This is a wonderful story! I wish I could have given it more than 5 stars!
