Agnes Wilkins is standing in front of an Egyptian mummy, about to make the first cut into the wrappings, about to unlock ancient (and not-so-ancient) history. Maybe you think this girl is wearing a pith helmet with antique dust swirling around her. Maybe you think she is a young Egyptologist who has arrived in Cairo on camelback. Maybe she would like to think that too. Agnes Wilkins dreams of adventures that reach beyond the garden walls, but reality for a 17-year-old debutante in 1815 London does not allow for camels - or dust, even. No, Agnes can only see a mummy when she is wearing a new silk gown and standing on the verdant lawns of Lord Showalter's estate, with chaperones fussing about and strolling sitar players straining to create an exotic atmosphere for the first party of the season. An unwrapping. This is the start of it all, Agnes’s debut season, the pretty girl parade that offers only ever-shrinking options: home, husband, and high society. It’s also the start of something else, because the mummy Agnes unwraps isn’t just a mummy. It’s a host for a secret that could unravel a new destiny - unleashing mystery, an international intrigue, and possibly a curse in the bargain. Get wrapped up in the adventure... but keep your wits about you, dear Agnes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elissa Steele.

Maynard Steele wanted only the best for his son, J.R. Maynard's disastrous childhood and the death of his wife led him to hate God. This hatred had changed him, though he couldn't see it. While J.R. knew his father loved him, he resented the way his dad pushed him to be the best. In addition, his dad would never talk about his mother or grandfather and J.R. was at the age where he desired to know more information than his dad was willing to share. Known as a stellar quarterback, it was J.R.'s turn to wait as the senior quarterback was returning for his final season. This infuriated Maynard as he had never seen his son on the bench. Seth Cutler, however, was an excellent quarterback and as his friendship with J.R. gets stronger, the relationship between J.R. and his dad intensifies. Unlike what Maynard has taught J.R., for Seth, football is not everything in life. J.R., along with his good friends Joe and Manny begin spending more time with Seth and learn a great deal more than they bargain for. Through wins and losses on the field, normal desires of teenagers, and tragedy, lives are changed. Maynard and J.R. have to come to grips with each other and their family situation. J.R., Joe, and Manny fight through their high school years and into college trying to stay on the right path. Seth, with the help of his cousin Andie, help J.R. discover God's plan and purpose for his life and it is a plan and purpose J.R. or his father would have never dreamed of!
