Nancy has a cousin, Susan Carr, living in Viriginia, so Nancy, Bess and George (her best chums) decide to fly down there to visit and solve the mystery of the hidden window. Before Nancy leaves, she writes a letter to her friend Ned Nickerson at Emerson College asking him to also come visit while the girls are there. Mr. Drew buys the girls their airline tickets and drives them to the airport, even though Nancy has just received a telegram (I love this old stuff) supposedly from Susan, telling her not to come.
Of course Susan did not send the telegram. Word gets around fast in criminal circles when Nancy Drew is about to become involved in a mystery, that they do not want her to solve! They will send telegrams in other peoples' names and cause any number of car wrecks. Poor George is clumsy or unlucky as usual, cutting her hand on a piece of glass and falling into a pit of ice cold water.
An actress, Sheila Patterson lives near the Carrs' home, in Ivy Hall with her daughter Annette, and asks Nancy to solve the mystery of a ghost in her house. Sheila wants to fix up the house but someone is trying to scare them into moving out! There can be only one reason for that.
In her spare time, Nancy takes lessons in making stained glass. The artist, Mr. Bradshaw, is reluctant, but gives in once he learns that Nancy has already attended art school. Alonzo Rugby (Mrs. Dondo's brother) works for Mr. Bradshaw and makes fun of Nancy's attempts to sketch a peacock for a stained glass window. This does not faze Nancy, as she correctly surmises that Alonzo wants to get her out of the class! He even snatches her drawing, wads it up, and throws it in the fireplace! He's just as rude as his sister.
Ned, Dave Evans and Burt Eddleton do come to visit. They are all football players and just happen to be attending an annual collegiate conference in Charlottesville. They don't stay long, but Ned helps Nancy on a sleuthing errand.
At Ivy Hall, Nancy, Bess and George search the place to find a clue to mysterious intruder. Nancy and George find a sliding panel, while Bess sees the ghost. Later they find a trap door!
Ivy Hall is broken into by someone searching for the stained glass window. "That horrible burglar," Bess exclaimed, "mussed up all our clothes!" And stole several new articles of lingerie as well! Also, the floors, walls and ceilings of the old mansion were hacked.
Nancy keeps her cool as always and everything ends just perfectly.
Secret panels, hidden passageways, and double walls figure into the story. It's a rip-roarin' adventure for Nancy, her girlfriends, and Ned Nickerson. Highly recommended.
