Maria's Debut Novel

Twelve-year-old Natalie Carpenter wants nothing more than to follow the old train tracks straight out of her no-nothing, go-nowhere, nothing-but-bad-memories town, but when a stranger arrives seeking to unravel mysteries left behind by his recently deceased mother, what started out as the worst summer of Natalie's life is about to dramatically change.

From abandoned train stations to old museums to encounters with a famous actress and even to a haunted hotel, Natalie and her new found friend, John Paul, race to piece together clues that could very well solve a half-century old missing person case and even lead to the discovery of a fabled hidden treasure. More importantly, will the secrets they reveal help heal deep wounds of the past, including Natalie’s own?
