About the Book:
Rebekah Yoder loves a good mystery—that is, until she becomes a part of one.
Rebekah Yoder has always been curious . . . or nosy depending on whom you ask. When a Yankee stranger moves into the house next door, she’s fascinated. Who is this strange old man who never waves or smiles? When Bekah sees him digging holes in his back yard, she’s sure there is a case to be solved.
Unfortunately, when her cousin blabs the story to the whole school, rumors fly. Is he hiding something? Treasure? Victims? And worst of all, annoying Caleb Mullet is now determined to solve the mystery with her. What they don’t realize is there’s not just secrecy lurking next door—there’s danger. Will Bekah take her curiosity too far?
Readers will love journeying with Bekah Yoder as they learn the danger of gossip, the importance of prayer, and the real story of The Secrets Beneath.
About the Author:
Kathleen Fuller is the author of the bestselling novel A Man of His Word and An Honest Love. When she’s not writing, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her family and farm pets.
This is a fantastic author! She is highly skilled in her abilities to write about the Amish for both adults and young adults. But, with Kathleen Fuller’s YA novels, she makes them full of adventure and just enough mystery to capture ALL her readers!
In The Secrets Beneath, Kathleen Fuller brings us to Middlefield and into the life of young Bekah. I absolutely adored her mischievous character. Always wanting to be in the middle of what’s going on and being a bit of a snoop, I saw so much of her in myself. Especially when she was bound and determined to find out just what exactly was going on in Middlefield! Through adventure and some digging around, Bekah sets out to do just that. But, as dangerous as that is becoming, she’s just not sure if she is ready to let God do the work for her. SHE wants to be the one to solve the mystery!
This was such a fun read, with awesome young characters, and enough mystery to keep the pages turning. If you have a young reader in your life who loves mysteries and solving them, then I wholeheartedly recommend this 5 star book for them! It is book 2 in the series, but I don’t think that there is anything too confusing in this story, so it could be good as a stand alone novel as well. Looking forward to the chance to read book 3, Hide and Secret, due out Summer 2011!
