9781590804414: The Missing Locket (Cynthia's Attic Book One) (Volume 1)

Magical costumes, disappearing stairs and a spooky attic filled with dusty antiques what more could two, adventurous, young girls ask for? Best friends, Cynthia and Gus as she prefers to be called, are as 'different as bubble gum and broccoli.' They are, however, equal in their ability to get into trouble without much effort. In trying to escape the boring summer of 1964, the adventurous twelve-year-old girls stumble upon a trunk in Cynthia's attic that has been in her family for three generations. They discover its mystical qualities when they are swept into the trunk and whisked back to 1914, literally into the lives of their twelve-year-old grandmothers, Clara and Bess. The mystery of a missing family locket is revealed. Their quest takes numerous twists and turns, including a life-and-death struggle on a large steamship traveling from England to America. Along with perilous escapades, they make important, sometimes humorous discoveries about their ancestors, and even manage to change history...for the better...along the way.

From the Author:

My series, Cynthia's Attic, is inspired by a 20-year recurring dream about a mysterious attic. When I realized that the dream took place in the home of my childhood best friend, Cynthia, I wrote a short memoir about our friendship and the "early days." That memoir  turned into a 4-book (soon to be 5) 'Tween fantasy/mysteries.
 
Cynthia and I lost touch for years, but shortly after the first two books were published, my husband and I moved to West Georgia within 40 miles of Cynthia's home! Our first meeting, after almost 20 years, was spent talking and laughing as if we were still sitting in her attic searching through boxes and trunks of memories. She loves the books and our friendship remains strong and true. 

About the Author:

Mary and her husband live in Villa Rica, GA and are the parents of three grown children, 2 granddaughters, and Lucy, their beloved, adopted canine. She is author of 5 Cynthia's Attic Series 'Tween books, is co-author of a humorous lifestyle book,WOOF: Women Only Over Fifty, along with several published short stories including the Gulf Coast Writers Anthology, Vol. VI. When she isn't exploring the mountains of West Georgia, Mary enjoys swimming, bike riding, and golf.
