Nina and Dora travel with their mother from the Netherlands to Croatia to spend the summer holidays with their aunt on a small Adriatic island. Their cousin Ivo, whose father died in a traffic accident, is very quiet and withdrawn at first. But after a while he begins to accept the two girls as friends. His wish, and his late father’s wish, to revive the depopulated and fire-ravaged island where he was born leads the reader into the world of children’s adventures. Ivo’s secret is the search for a treasure without which no life on earth would be possible.
