The Nelson family is busy on the farm, and Jason and Andy are busy solving new mysteries. Who has been trespassing on their land? Will a hidden camera tell them the answer? Mom and Cathy have a mystery of their own to solve, caused by Dad and the boys. And who is that old man at the party, the one who says he is 85, but is really much younger? Trapped will tell you the answers to these questions! 
There are new mysteries at the Nelson farm, as well as lots of fun. Lights go out and come back on, Mom keeps playing with flashlights and candles, and Cathy does a short disappearing act. Is Andy sleepwalking again? Why is there water on the bedroom floor at midnight? Who’s going to win the contests they’ve come up with? And will Grandad ever find his way out of that maze? To find out the answers, you’ll have to read our latest mystery, Lights Out!

“My brother (age 9) and I (age 12) love reading your Farm Mystery Series. I enjoy the excitement and suspense. I can’t stop reading them – I can’t put them down.

Most of all the biggest reason is they are written about a Christian home!” New York

This is an account of a young woman who is still waiting on the Lord.

“One thing I could not get over was how real it was. What a treat to get to read this book, this glimpse into your own heart. Journey of the Heart resonated with honesty.

Janet comes full circle and though her struggles aren’t over, she knows Who strengthens her.” Natalie Nyquist, author of Quest for the High Places.

A flurry of unforeseen, and -- to 16-year-old Beth Grant -- unwelcome, changes robbing her of the pleasantries she's used to, and slowly shifting her focus to what's truly important . . . Her own imperfection makes the ensuing events, and her struggles and victories throughout, particularly encouraging . . ." From a review in HopeChest Magazine, Aug/Sept 1997, p. 17.

"Thank you for writing and publishing such a needed book! . . . I was often encouraged as a mother to love my children more. I felt this book was not only a book for young women but also ‘older women.' I was very pleased with all the characters and how the good qualities were lifted up, and ungodly revealed as such."

The book features a good discussion on character traits and how these traits affect the marriage relationship. This is a good book for families to read together.
