Time Period: 1862 Daria Fisk's father is a doctor who's serving with the Union Army. When her financially-strapped mother must open their home to boarders, a wounded soldier comes to stay. Daria's twin brother, David, is thrilled by the man's stories of war, but Daria has her suspicions. Daria Solves a Mystery uses actual historical events to tell the exciting fictional story of an eleven-year-old girl caught up in the confusion and drama of America's Civil War, and shows that anyone-no matter how young or seemingly insignificant-can make a difference. Melding fiction with real events is ideal for teaching history and faith-especially at this price!
