THE GALLERY, by Laura Marx Fitzgerald


The story: When she’s kicked out of school, her mother gets Martha a job in the mansion where she works. But no matter how rich, Mr. Sewell and his house are also mysterious. Why does he keep his wife locked up in the attic? Where did her fabulous collection of art go? And why is the brother of a notorious anarchist opening doors for the rich and famous? Martha is determined to get to the bottom of it, but to succeed, she’ll have to brush up on mind-reading, plotting, and the art of riding unnoticed in dumbwaiters.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s a fun mystery wrapped up in a Roaring 20s historical novel. Make sure to look up all the works of art in Google Images!
