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 recieved this book this morning and sat down to read it, and ended up finishing the book! Delightful mystery! I love the combination of young Amish lives mixed with Godly lessons and suspense. I laughed, I prayed and I was intrigued by the mystery through out the whole book....and I'm a grandma!
But this is certainly a book I wouldn't mind reading again. Kathleen Fuller knew how to create magnificent novels for adults and now she has found a wonderful, clean way to include teens in better genre of books. She packs this book full of lessons, but does so in a way that will hook the young reader and keep them guessing til the end.
This is a book that I would recommend to all the young readers out there. It is something I wish my daughter had growing up! Kudos to Kathleen for a great job!
