|Nancy Among Cult Members|
Nancy was completely taken by surprise. She knew that she had never seen the man before, for she would not have forgotten such a cruel face. His steel-gray eyes bore straight into her. Nancy was so bewildered she could think of nothing to say. (Reverse side of a sketch page included in my new journal.)
I was addicted to the suspense, and I liked our heroine's freedom and the fact that she always followed up on clues. My friend Lucie said that she liked that Nancy was both resourceful and proactive, never waiting around for permission. My friend Renata said that she liked our role model's independence, fearlessness and style. She also liked her close friendships with George and Bess, and how they could always depend on each other.
The original 1931 cover of The Secret of Red Gate Farm was the work of RH Tandy, while the 1961 cover was done by Bill Gillies (I can still see his name on the cover of my journal). Apparently, the story was revised slightly in 1961, but since then, this version was still being published in 2009.
