Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"The Secret of Willow Patch" is a timeless classic style book for young adults. The story encompasses the lives of two families, the Brooks' and the Parker family. Tina Brooks is an only child and has lived in Middleton Heights all her life, but she lived way out by the woods on a small street with no other children around. When the Parker family moves in, she finds excitement in having new friends, but at the same time, things begin to go wrong on her peaceful street. Within no time at all, Tina and her new best friends, Sherry, David and Cody Parker are all swept into a mystery that is more than strange. They work together as a team to figure out what is going on, trying not to alert their parents, but it's impossible. As much as the kids don't want to admit it, there is something very wrong going on in the woods across the street from them and only time will tell what "The Secret of Willow Patch" truly is.

From the Back Cover

Twelve year-old Tina Brooks lives in a quiet rural area that is incredibly normal until the Parker family moves in. Within no time at all, very strange things begin happening that affect both the Brooks and the Parker families.

David, Cody and Sherry Parker are sucked into an exciting mystery, and they know that without their help, Tina may never unravel The Secret of Willow Patch.

I Know some might think I am Bias about the writer ( if you want to word it that way) due to me marrying her Daughter one day. But this book was a awesome read. Yes it took some time due to the fact I had a lot going on. I cant wait to read the 2end book …

Way to go Becky !

The Secret of the Willow Patch and sequel The Discovery are great reading and keep you in suspense throughout. This is great reading for fans of Harry Potter. The children and their families get involved in mystery, magic and the message is a positive one for young readers. Thumbs up!

Format: Paperback
When new neighbors moved into the house up the street, in a neighborhood comprised entirely of elderly individuals, twelve-year old Tina Brooks was elated. Being home schooled, she seldom had contact with other children, much less those her own age. The Parker children turned out to be just the friends Tina was hoping for. When she took her new friends to her secret reading spot beneath an ancient willow tree in the nearby woods, unexplained strange things began to happen.

The authors of this fantasy have developed a story that engages a youngster's imagination with unexpected twists and turns in a way that keeps the young adult reader connected through believable, youthful, dialogue. The story is written in a way that does not `talk down' to the young reader, but speaks to them more in their own age appropriate language. This cliff hanger leaves the young reader encouraged to pick up the next book in what is obviously a spell binding series. I would recommend this story for eleven to twelve-year olds interested in reading works of fantasy.
