The Secret of the Stone House
Emily’s adventures continue when she returns to the past to visit the pioneer family, while at the same time trying to unravel a family mystery. When she finds a mysterious key, she is led to an important discovery, but one that leaves her even more intrigued about her family’s past.
Twelve-year-old Emily Bradford travels back in time to discover a secret about her grandmother’s stone house. She also learns how to accept her parents’ divorce and change her relationship with her mother. Times are hard for Emily Bradford. Her beloved Grandmother Renfrew has died and her mother can’t afford to keep the family’s beautiful old stone farmhouse. Emily and her mom, Kate, are driving to the house to help auction off its contents. At the same time, Emily’s parents are divorcing and Emily fears her father won’t have time for her any more. And her mom’s driving her crazy with her obsessively organized and bossy ways. But Emily has a wonderful secret. She’s learned to travel into the past–to the time her forebears were building the stone house. She sees her grandmother as a child and becomes friends with her great-uncle Geordie as a boy of twelve. In the past, Emily learns to understand her mother better and discovers a powerful secret contained in the old house-a secret that will help her explore her family’s roots in Scotland. And she may even have a way to keep the stone house in the family.
