At Bellevere House, you couldn't stay out of trouble if you wanted to.
March, 1937 . . . Faye Powell does try to do her best, most of the time. Coming from an underprivileged background, she's been lucky to move in with her uncle, a wealthy banker, and his family of exuberant young adults. The Haverton kids haven't had much to trouble them, as indicated by the reckless way they do whatever pops into their heads and expect things to turn out fine. Faye is popular in the family as an anchor and moral support, but things get a little bit past her best efforts when her cousin Myrtle makes a questionable engagement and new friends start to pour in around them.
Then there’s snobby, self-absorbed Ed, her aunt’s step-son. He’s had a problem with Faye from day one since she came to Bellevere. She seems to get under his skin and he never hesitates to insist he doesn’t have time for her. As each new friend the Havertons make seems to bring another mystery with them, the biggest secret might be one Faye's completely overlooking--how her cousin Ed really feels about her. Why does he act this way? There's always an adventure at scenic, deceptively peaceful Bellevere House.
