A Swift River Valley Novel by Carla Neggers
Review: Samantha "Sam" Bennett is the granddaughter of Harry Bennett, famous for his explorations and worldwide adventures as a treasure hunter. Sam had come to be an expert on pirates after listening to her grandfather's stories, and became especially interested in Captain Farraday, who sailed the eastern seaboard about three hundred years ago. She had no way of knowing how true the stories her grandfather told were, but she longed to explore them all the same. After her grandfather died at the age of ninety-six, Sam has the responsibility of going through her grand-father's possessions. In his home in Boston she finds hidden in a closet a beautiful old painting of "The Mill at Cider Brook". Next to the painting she also finds a legal sized envelope containing about fifty yellowed handwritten pages — a rough draft — of a story titled "The Adventures of Captain Farraday and Lady Elizabeth". She knows there is a mill in Cider Brook. Could this be a painting of that old mill? And could the stories in her hands be true? She decides to learn more in Cider Brook, a Swift River Valley novel of romantic suspense by Carla Neggers.
