Overview

About the author

Rosey Dow has a lot to say - writing, speaking and teaching. A best-selling author and vivacious speaker, she addresses churches, women's groups, home schooling organizations, writer's clubs, radio and television. She crafts teaching articles and presents workshops for fiction writers as well. She and her husband, David, have been home schoolers for thirteen years. Rosey was an introverted teenager with many fears and self-doubts. She hated meeting new people and had a fierce dread of public speaking. Through a series of painful events, she was cut off from her parents in 1992. During the healing process, a marvelous transformation took place in her life. Her true personality slowly unfolded. Shyness vanished forever. Suddenly filled with abounding joy, she loved talking to people, making new friends, learning about others. The joy overflowed to her keyboard. Rosey's first release, "Megan's Choice", was a reader's favorite. That same year she was chosen a favorite new author. Her third release, Fireside Christmas, reached the CBA bestseller's list in December, 1999. Rosey's stories are always historical with a touch of mystery and a hint of romance.

    Not a history or mystery buff? Not a problem

    This book is so well-written, so riveting, and so historically significant, it is truly one of the rare books for all seasons and all literary tastes. Rosey has managed to bury the villain and expose the facts about the Scopes Trial-of-the-century so masterfully that the reader will surely misjudge the outcome and gain an invaluable history lesson without even being aware this could be a textbook. In fact, were I an American history teacher, it would most certainly be on my list of required reading. It really should be on yours.

    Gripping Page-turner!

    Don't read this book unless you're prepared to stay up all night just so you can find out whodunnit! Accurate history lesson wrapped in a dramatic mystery. Great book for those high school students who must read novels for their English classes. Excellent resource for homeschooling parents since it combines history and literature. Do you think you can uncover the murderer? I did, too--and couldn't!

    great read!

    This book kept me guessing until the end. In fact I smugly thought I had it figured out until the last chapter. Loved the intrigue, the sweet romance, and the painless history lesson!

    Couldn't wait to finish it!

    This mystery had me guessing to the very end. A simple time in a simple town, until people began dying. Investigating murders is time consuming but when you also have a trial that is making national headlines, law enforce has their hands full. But this mystery is also educational as it gives a factual account of the famous 'monkey trial' that changed educational history.

    Mystery and History Lesson Combined

    I enjoyed the murder puzzle in REAPING THE WHIRLWIND, but this book was more than a mystery. While investigating a series of strange deaths, Tyson, a lawman, finds himself caught up in the infamous, turbulent 1925 Scopes 'Monkey' trial. Among the murders and detection and historical excitement, author Rosey Dow weaves this hypnotic question: What difference does it make WHAT we believe? We have our answer when we find out the solution to the mystery.

    A Simpler Time

    I liked this book because it introduced me to another era, where life was simple. Or was it? A serial killer is on the loose, and the deputy trying to catch him, finds himself spending more time dealing with the circus surrounding the Scopes trial, than catching a real murderer. Differing idealogies conflict. What's best of all, is if you saw the movie Inherit the Wind, you know nothing of what really happened during the so-called monkey trial. After this novel you will. But I caution you - read slowly or you'll never guess whodunnit.
