Description

In this intriguing mystery, Captain Fortesque finds himself torn between two loyalties. Having been educated in the finest schools of England, he enjoyed acceptance in high society, but kept his true upbringing a secret. Then a mysterious note that could only be read after his father&amp;rsquo;s death arrived and changed the course of his life. In the meantime, Marjorie wandered over a wilderness of ashes in the bleak, coal-mining region of Daisy Bank, wondering how anything could grow in such poor and barren soil. She learns that, even in the midst of apparent desolation, she can be &amp;lsquo;a tree of the Lord&amp;rsquo;s planting,&amp;rsquo; bringing sunshine and growth to the dark, dreary world in which she finds herself. Captain Fortesque and Marjorie both model the very truth found in Paul&amp;rsquo;s letter to the Roman church &amp;ndash; that &amp;ldquo;suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope removes all shame.&amp;rdquo; If there was ever a story that epitomized this truth, it is The Lost Clue.&lt;br /&gt;<br />&amp;nbsp;
