THE SECRET OF TELFAIR INN
by Idella Bodie

Illustrations by Louise Yancey

A Tale of Mystery and Suspense Woven With Historical Lore and Local Legend

Marcy and Phil Dunlap come with their parents from the North to Aiken, where their father is doing historical research. The family stays at Telfair Inn (patterned after the Willcox), which is in a state of dilapidation. In fact, one part of the sprawling old inn has been targeted for demolition. The antagonist, eccentric old Mr. Crowe, frightens young Marcy. It is obvious he does not want the Dunlaps, because of the children, to stay in the inn. When he chases Marcy and Phil with his cane, they decide he is trying to hide something. Mysterious things start to take place, giving Phil the idea to explore the unused part of the old inn. What they find out not only surprises them but teaches a lesson in compassion.
Ages 10 & up. 126 pages. Illustrations.
(1971) 2001. Sandlapper.
