And then there was the boy in the yard. Who was he, and why was he watching the house?

Peggy Dymond Leavey is an extremely descriptive author and has chapters that just leave you hanging. If you ever have a couple hours to just sit down and read, I would definitely check out her books.

Norah Bingham, a thirteen-year-old girl, and her mother, Ginny Bingham, arrange to spend the Christmas with Norahís deceased fatherís aunt, Caroline Stoppard. Things start to go wrong when Norahís mom is called out of town for business. Ginny decides to send Norah out ahead of her and join her in a couple of days. After Norah meets her great-aunt it is made clear that she wasnít welcome. To top her bad luck off, she begins to see a mysterious boy throughout the yard. When she mentions this to her great aunt, she won't hear of it. Will Norah discover who this enigmatic boy is or will she run out of time.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mystery mixed with some drama.  The book is recommended for ages nine and up by the publisher.  If you enjoyed this book, check out other titles by the author.

The Path Through the Trees earns four stars.
