"Mandie and The Trunk's Secret" by Lois Gladys Leppard

About this book:

  “Mandie and her best friend return to the attic to investigate and discover a set of old letters which include some important and exciting information.”

Series: Book #5 in “Mandie” series. (Read the reviews of: #1 Here! #2 Here! #3 Here! And #4 Here!) {There also is the “Young Mandie Mystery” series, (Book #1 review Here and Book #2 review Here!) but they do not connect together well}

Spiritual Content- Talks about God & trusting Him; ‘H’s are capital when referring to God (but not when “the Lord himself” is said); Prayers & a Blessing over food; A few Scriptures are quoted, mentioned, and prayed; A couple mentions of Heaven; Uncle Ned refers to Heaven as “happy hunting ground”; A mention of a graveyard.

Negative Content- April’s baaaaaack! (Not as bad this time though.)

Sexual Content- Reading old love letters & a mention of a man’s lips not touching a woman’s; Mentions of Joe & Mandie marrying when they’re older.

-Amanda “Mandie” Shaw, age 12
                                             P.O.V. of Mandie
                                         Set in 1900

My personal Rating-
I think the Mandie series gets better as it goes. :)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.

  1. Oh I absolutely loved reading the Mandie series!! I probably own half of them but I only ever read up to about #20. I would love to finish the series sometime -I just have no idea when!
