Summary

Summary

Rebecca and her neighbor, Mr. Rossi, seem to be having a run of bad luck. When Mr. Rossi sprains his wrist, Rebecca takes over the care and feeding of his carrier pigeons. Then a strange black pigeon delivers an eerie message warning Mr. Rossi of danger, and Rebecca must jump into action to find answers. Where did the pigeon come from, and what sort of danger is lurking? Is Rebecca herself now in danger as well? Only a visit to a fortune teller will reveal the truth! An illustrated "Looking Back" essay provides facts about the 1900s.

Wilhelmina's father has left her clues to find the gold that he hid on the boat, and, while the girls work together to decode the secret messages they learn that they aren't the only ones trying to find it. Also set in New Orleans in the 1850s is The Cameo Necklace. Cecile discovers after being caught in a crowd leaving a show that the precious diamond necklace that she borrowed from her aunt is missing. In her search to find it, she discovers hidden corners of New Orleans and secrets she never imagined.
