Owning Treasure is the story of Antonio Pagano, a man who lives amidst the unrelenting suspicion of a petty theft he insists he did not commit, but which nevertheless defines his life. On the day of the crime a disaster of epic proportion occurred in Northeastern Pennsylvania as the Susquehanna River plunged through the ceiling of the Knox Coal Mine, leading to the collapse of the region’s only major industry. Young Antonio flees his hometown before he learns of the disaster. While away he builds a new life for himself and gains a family in the process. When once again the river upends the lives of those living along its banks, it also calls Antonio back home to his people, only now as a respected and generous business owner. In serving his community, he seeks to restore the broken relationships of his past but finds only awkwardness and absurd conflict because he refuses to confess to the crime which drove him away.

Like the flow of water, the events surrounding the generations of Antonio’s family are at once under their control and in control of them. The course of Antonio's life may have been altered by a crime, but Antonio alone must navigate through the consequences of that event. Ultimately, he will be responsible for what he becomes. In the days following Antonio's death, his true legacy is revealed as his wife, his son, and his very clever grandchildren Tony and Olivia discover long forgotten secrets of what happened fifty years earlier on the day of the mine disaster. They will come to understand the difference between possessing treasure and owning it.

Written to be enjoyed by young people and adults alike.

Maybe I am partial being from central PA. I could relate to names, places, and events in NEPA in the mid fifties and on. The author(s) writes in such a way to make the reader feel you are a silent family member: seeing, hearing, and feeling the strong emotions of each character. I read mostly at bedtime, and I couldn't wait to get back to this family story. I was sad when the story ended, but who-dun-it was quite a surprise. Great authors. Would definitely read more of their work.
I'm a voracious reader and over time I've come across a number of debut novels which fell short of the mark. This novel exceeded my expectations! Joe and Laura have managed to create realistic and deep characters that draw the reader into a well conceived plot. The written dialog rings true and the authors are able to maintain a consistent thematic voice over the generations spanned by the book. The scenes that take place post-funeral are especially poignant, touching, and a little surprising as well. Thank you, Wilburs ...
I read this book in 2 evenings, staying up way too late both nights. It is a wonderful debut from the authors and the beginning instantly draws the reader into the story. I enjoyed that the story went back and forth between two eras, following two generations of the family. The mystery in the story was certainly there, but it's really more a book about family. There are numerous descriptive passages (describing the town or the specific room) which makes the story move a bit slow for my taste, but it does all add to the understanding and knowledge of the Pagano family. At times, I was a bit lost as the story switched quickly between characters' perspectives with no warning. However, I quickly adjusted to this writing style and it did not detract from the storyline. Overall, a great read and I look forward to more about this family!
Pretty good book with a pretty good story line. For some reason, it felt a little slow and was a little confusing trying to read and remember which time the author was talking about.
Jusr right!
I really enjoyed this book. I initially bought it because I saw that the story was located near where I live, but along with some of the familiar places, I really enjoyed the story.
Really enjoyed the book
From the very beginning of this book I was captured. I couldn't put it down. It was a very interesting story and I'm looking forward to more books from these authors.
