Life on the “Hill” turns exciting when eleven year old Jake finds an old jar hidden in the cellar of the farmhouse. The jar contains a paper that would propel him and his older brother, Billy, into a summer full of fun, frustration, intrigue and discovery. The unraveling of each clue leads to more mystery and excitement. With help from their Uncle Dave, they slowly decipher the “Mystery on Macomber Hill”.
The setting for the story is on a farm on Macomber Hill , North Jay, Maine and its surrounding areas. I lived on this farm when I was nine years old. Although the story is fiction, many of the things that take place in the story actually happened to me or my brothers.
The father of the two boys has a very heavy “downeast” Maine accent which I have used throughout the book. The book was written to show what like was like during that era and to also tell an exciting story. I believe that I have accomplished both.
