Search for the Shadowman by Joan Lowery Nixon

I read this mystery about 8 years ago after enjoying Nixon’s Orphan Train series. My oldest son was reading some of his first novels, and Nixon’s books were a hit. I remember being excited by this story then, and it was just as good this time around. The combination of the genealogical research, the mystery to be solved, and the boy’s desire to clear his relative’s name is tremendous. Nixon is a master storyteller, leading us step by step with great anticipation. I love unusual books, and this one is quite unique. It has a great range for readers as well, accessible and engaging for 4th graders through adults.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

    Had my tech guy check it, and there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong. I do know IE has a tendency to be incompatible with anything else. I recommend you switch to a better browser – Firefox or Chrome. He also said your screen resolution may be too low.
