[Children's Fiction (Ages 10-12)]
[Read by Christine Lakin]

Eleven-year-old Nell Warne arrives on her aunt's doorstep lugging a heavy sack of sorrows. If her Aunt Kate rejects her, it's the miserable Home for the Friendless. Luckily, Nell makes herself indispensable to Aunt Kate. For Aunt Kate is the first-ever female detective employed by the Pinkerton Detective Agency, and Nell has a knack for the kind of bold action that made Pinkertons famous in Civil War era America. With nation-changing events simmering in the background, Nell uses her skills to uncover past truths and solve present mysteries. Based on the true story of Kate Warne, this fast-paced adventure recounts feats of daring and danger... including saving the life of Abraham Lincoln!
