The clue in the old album in a very suspenseful book. As are all of the Nancy Drew mysteries. In this book, Nancy befriends an elderly woman who collcts dolls. She asks Nancy to help her find a doll that her daughter mentioned briefly to her just before her death that may be of some value to her grandaughter Rose. This search involves hostile gypsies, narrow escapes, Nancy going to New York, and many more interesting happenings. This is a great book that anyone who likes Nancy Drew should read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I enjoyed this book just not as much as other Nancy Drew books. The gypsie thing wasn't very realistic in my opinion and the plot wasn't that strong. Other than that I enjoyed it and I would recommend it to you. (Especially if you love Nancy Drew!)
