Amid the mystery of Colombia's dense forest, two boys find that life can be far more challenging than it seems. Eduardo is the son of a maid working on the estate of a wealthy Irish immigrant. The estate owner's son and Eduardo often play together. One day, playing in the forest, they discover a cave where an old woman presents an emerald amulet and explains its mystical powers. After an unfortunate accident, Eduardo survives the other boy and learns that the protective powers of the amulet are both his birthright and his shield.

Throughout his young life, Eduardo struggles to discover what he is meant to be and do.
Supported by the owner of the estate, he attends a university and prepares for a life of success and wealth. Later he decides that his love of learning is more important than pursuit of money and power. More than once, he faces life-threatening situations where the protective power of the amulet saves his life. Along the way, he learns how difficult some decisions can be, especially when one person's life must be weighed against another's.

The author J.P. Cunningham weaves a tale where magic and reality blend, leaving the reader to wonder where one world begins and the other ends. The Emerald Amulet is, above all, a love story...a story about the unswerving loyalty of one young man to those he loves most.
