Gathering Shadows

Gathering Shadows, the first book in Nancy Mehl's Finding Sanctuary series,was a great read!  Hang on as Wynter Evans, a young reporter, attempts to solve a 9-year old mystery concerning the disappearance of her 7-year old brother.

After Wynter sees an image that looks like her brother, she knows she must check out the situation.  She heads to Sanctuary, Missouri, the location where the photograph was taken.  This small, remote Mennonite community turns into a very interesting place to start her investigation. 

After she meets Reuben King, the local mayor, he agrees to help in her search for the answer to her question.  Could that boy in the photograph truly be her brother?

You won't believe the situations she encounters on her way to the answer.  She makes a number of new and dear friends, as well as a new awareness of God's place in her world!
