“Hope, courage, and respect for others – when it seems most impossible”
From the very start, she was told she didn’t belong in the north woods of Stoney Creek. Shoe Makinen thought he knew MaryAnne until a stranger turns the small lumbering town upside down. He discovers something shocking about her that he never would have imagined without the insight of an outsider. Nor would have MaryAnne.
The third book in the Greatest Treasure series, Mystery of MaryAnne explores the upset that comes from discovering the roots that one has were never roots at all; and the strength that comes from faith in God to reach beyond self to others in troubling need. An encouraging journey as Shoe Makinen uncovers more of what MaryAnne is made of.
