In a twisting, turning web of intrigue and deceit, Not My Diamonds follows two families as their lives unfold with similar struggles, injustice, and heartbreak, until their stories intersect and both try to move forward along a more positive path with efforts to add good to the world.

Maddie, the girl who grew up to commit financial fraud is faced with the loss of her gains. She commits to becoming honest and charitable, turning her life around, though, perhaps too late. Holocaust survivor Helena knows of a family treasure lost to time, a treasure that was entrusted to Maddie's grandfather at the end of World War II.

She develops a kinship with Helena and is there to see the resolution to the connected stories of the Bergers and the Ellises.
