One Came Home

Amy Timberlake

The year is 1871 and Georgie Burkhardt is leading a sedate life in Placid, Wisconsin where she helps her family run the general store. Her life is turned upside down when her older sister goes missing and she decides to solve the mystery of her disappearance. Georgie leaves on an uncooperative mule with Billy McCabe as an unwelcome companion. Together they encounter mountain lions, counterfeiters, and many other challenges. Georgie’s narration is laugh-out-loud funny with original and folksy humor. Historical fiction and mystery combine in this entertaining read from the author of That Girl Lucy Moon (2006) Ages 9-11
