The Girl Next Door

Gelesen von Jennifer Dallman

(4,359 Sterne; 92 Bewertungen)

Marcia Brett has noticed unusual activity at the ramshackle and seemingly abandoned mansion next door: a mysterious, veiled lady is seen coming and going out the front door, a different woman is glimpsed through a shuttered window, and most mysterious of all, a pretty, blond girl is seen briefly looking forlornly out an upper window! Along with her best friend, Janet McNeil, the two girls are determined to learn the secrets of the old house and befriend the young girl, but once they do, the secrets only increase. The girl has no idea why she is at this house or even who the women she is living with are! Has she been kidnapped? Are they relatives? No one seems to know. - Summary by Jennifer Dallman (4 hr 15 min)

Entertaining

(4 Sterne)

I would deem this light entertainment. The girls at the heart of the story were very likable characters and I enjoyed spending time with them as they embroidered, read aloud to each other, and increasingly got involved in the proceedings next door. The "mystery" parts of the story were okay but not exactly absorbing. The Librivox volunteer did a very good job.

Sweet story

I like this story, even tho it is a bit far fetched. A new face next door leads the ladies next door to investigate, which leads to them making a new friend. Then, just as mysteriously, the new friend starts avoiding them. What is behind the odd behaviors in the strange house? Reading was good. Thank you!

Nice little story

(4 Sterne)

Two girls try to unravel a mystery, bringing in a few adults to help. Leave it to Aunt Minerva to solve it! Nicely read, although I often had a mad urge to blow my own nose. Several chapters she read with a head cold, with that stuffy, lack-of-N-sound pronunciation. :)
