The Secret Room
Shawna and Thea are working together on a math project for their eighth-grade class. But the numbers don't add up, and they make a startling discovery—the secret room in the basement of Thea's house, an old Vermont inn.
The code on the walls makes the girls—and everyone in town—wonder why there was a secret room. Was it part of the Underground Railroad, or perhaps something less, well, heroic?
Discovering the truth is harder than they would have thought, especially when the truth is not what you want to hear.
The Secret Room is a story appropriate for readers ages 10 and up.
"While The Secret Room is aimed at young adults, anyone desiring to be transported back in time, coupled with the exploration of relationships and a good mystery, will no doubt be rewarded. "
Fred Lichtenberg, author
"It's like being 14 years old again and reading your first Nancy Drew. And learning, besides, that no matter how old you are, you still love a good Nancy Drew! It's full of fascinating historical facts as well as fiction. The author clearly loves history and thinking about it. So will her readers.
Best of all, it's a good read and a lot of fun."
Elaine C. Magalis
"The Secret Room is a masterwork in which every sentence is lovingly crafted and written straight from the heart."
