must. find. hidden. window.
When Nancy Drew reads an advertisement for a lost stained glass window in the newspaper, her imagination is entirely diverted. The design of the window is historically unique, and the window itself holds great intrinsic value as the legacy of a proud English family. Nancy decides to track down this window with the help of her friends, Bess Marvin and George Fayne, but it becomes increasingly obvious that someone doesn’t want her to find the window…
But who could wish to foil Nancy’s search?
A few people posit that peacocks are bad omens, but they are portrayed as superstitious individuals. One girl believes she has seen a ghost, but it turns out to be a person in a sheet. (Seriously?!? SO stereotypical.)
The girls interact a little with their ‘favorite dates’, Ned Nickerson, Burt Eddleton, and Dave Evans.
Conclusion. A fun romp into the 1950s.
