In the Mysteries of Middlefield series, readers will be immersed into exciting mysteries and authentic Amish culture.
With a twin brother and five younger brothers, Mary Beth Mullet’s house is in constant chaos. Her parents don’t seem to mind the noise, but she needs a break from all the pestering and babysitting.
It’s the summer before eighth grade, and Mary Beth plans to escape to her secret place as much as possible. The old barn in the neighboring field is dangerous, and her parents have forbidden her to go there, but she escapes to it as often as she can.
Mary Beth soon discovers she is not alone in the barn. Someone is living there; someone who needs help. Can Mary Beth help the stranger without losing her secret place? And what if the barn is as dangerous as her parents say it is?
Readers will identify with Mary Beth’s struggles for peace and independence and be engrossed in the excitement and danger of A Summer Secret.
I loved this story!
At first I didn't know what to expect. I liked the characters, mainly Mary Beth, but had no idea what the mystery would be. When it turned out to do with an orphaned runaway, I was not put off in the least.
This story had a way of making you look at your own beliefs, and wonder what you would do in the same situation. Honestly, I bet we can all take some tips off the children in the book. We too soon forget to be good to our fellow man, and help people when they are in need. This book reminds us of what we should really be like towards each other.
A great book for any adult or young reader.
