Being from Indiana, I had to read this book. It was OK. Margo is enjoying her school off from school. When her husband finds an old crusty, rusty gun in the mud on their farm, she is drawn to find out about how it got there. She researches in the library and questions old timers in the small town about the murder that happened 50 years ago. In the end, she finds out how and why the person was murdered but was it worth her summer of researching?
