Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this nineteenth-century mystery, a spunky girl strives to decipher a code in order to recover her familys lost fortune.

No one ever talks about Hatties grandfather, whos been hidden in the Utica Insane Asylum ever since he squandered Grandmothers fortune and started hearing voices in the walls. When a telegram arrives with news of Grandfathers death, old wounds are reopened and financial ruin looms once again. But its not until Hattie intercepts a threatening notice from the tax collector that she realizes theyre in danger of losing everything — including the family estate. A mysterious book containing a code written by Grandfather leads Hattie to believe that Grandmothers fortune may not be lost after all, however, and though she works feverishly to crack the code, every step forward leads to another riddle. Are the contents of the book simply the ravings of a madman, or is it possible that there was more to Grandfather than met the eye?

Synopsis:

In this mystery set in the 19th century, a spunky girl uses her wits to try to save the family estate from ruin, and restore respect for her late grandfather's reputation.
