    Fun and reminiscent of my growing up time on the coast. Great family, community and characters- well developed. Reveals a message without hammering folks over the head. I loved the characters and the slowly revealed secrets

    The Secret of Gumbo Grove is an excellent book. I highly recommend it, especially if you like mysteries. It is about an 11-year old girl, Raisin Stackhouse who help Miss Effie, the church secretary, clean out an old graveyard. Miss Effie knows all about the people buried in the cemetery, and is happy to tell their stories to Raisin. After Miss Effie gives Raisin the church records, she finds herself in a mystery, who is "Gumbo" Dickson? Why doesn't anyone in the town want to talk about him? Could this African American be the founder of Gumbo Grove? I really liked how the author, Eleanora E. Tate, tied the mystery in with Raisin's everyday life. For example, the "Miss Ebony Calvary County Pageant," in which one of Raisin's sisters, Hattie, participates. I disliked Miss Aussie, who wouldn't even admit that some people in the graveyard were her relatives! Miss Aussie wanted to destroy the cemetery. I also found it very sad that marijuana and alcohol were sold to anyone, especially minors, in her community. Luckily, Raisin didn't take any. This book is one of my favorites, and I hope you like it too.

    The Mystery of Gumbo Grove started off wonderful, with a nice setting(a small South Carolina town),and an interesting plot(a young girl explores an old cemetary, discovering many stories about her town's history). However, as it went on, it strayed from its' original plot. This made for an anticlimactic storyline throughout a large majority of the book. Towards the end, however, the plot picked up, making for an exciting unraveling. Despite its' obvious faults, I would still recommend this book to children looking for a good adventure.
