The Disappearing Stranger • 1
If she told her family what she saw, would anyone believe her?
After her Irish father died in a construction accident, Kate O’Connell and her mother were left to struggle alone in the Minneapolis of 1906. Afraid of losing her friends if Mama returned to Sweden, 12-year-old Kate goes to their pastor to pray about getting her mother a new husband.
When God answers their prayers, Kate dreads what will happen. Become part of a Swedish family in northwest Wisconsin, a place where her friend Sarah says there are bears? Though Kate had always wanted a sister, what about two brothers? Could anything be worse?
As Kate’s new stepbrother Anders does his best to make her life miserable, strange occurrences become a mystery. Was it just the wind that moved the bushes? What happens on a scary all-alone ride into town? And what does Papa Nordstrom mean when he tells Kate, “You’ll earn your way with Anders”?
