DescriptionSterling's Gift takes you back in American history to a period just after the Civil War. This fictional tale takes place in the modern Neill-Cochran House (now a museum) which was used as a hospital for wounded soldiers by General George Custer and his wife, Libbie.
When the game begins, you find Libbie Custer's diary in which she writes about a "secret" gift she received for Christmas from a blind child orphaned during the war. She told no one about the present and it has remained hidden for over a century. Curious as you are, you set out to find it. During the course of the game you will search everywhere for clues, solve puzzles and eventually find the miraculous gift mentioned in the diary.
