To satisfy her curiosity, Grandmother Dane tells Courtney the legend of the Lions Gate--that Riverlawn used to be called Lions Gate until one of the two stone lions on the front gateposts mysteriously disappeared, and along with him, a family treasure of some kind. This tale sends twelve-year-old Courtney on a search of the spacious grounds, for she is convinced--as so many before her have been--that the treasure is a diamond necklace.

If she can find the lion, she believes she will find the necklace, too. And in this way she can provide the money so badly needed by her grandmother and her gay young Aunt Clarissa.As Courtney explores Riverlawn, she discovers lots of wonderful places--the Funny Rocks, the swimming hole, and even a ruined Chinese pagoda--but she also finds that nothing is much fun when youre all by yourself.

Then Barbie Holmes comes to visit her aunt and uncle next door and Courtney really begins to enjoy herself, for Barbie is the same age and is also enthusiastic about hunting for the treasure.The girls join forces in searching for the lion, and eventually, after an almost undecipherable old diary has been discovered, even Barbies aloof older brother Ralph takes part in the hunt.After many adventures and a near disaster, too, Courtney, Barbie, and Ralph do find a treasure.

Though not the one she had hoped for, it brings a new, happy home for Courtney and a most satisfying solution to the mystery at Lions Gate.
