Book Synopsis
Each story visits one of the many spirit-inhabited places in and around a small Town in the midst of the beautiful hilly landscape in the American midwest. The European settlers found the climate ideal and grew and shipped the plentiful apples, melons, strawberries and many grains, early on by riverboat and later by train to Chicago and beyond. Even today, in the valley of the Fruithills, the past still lingers to inspire dreams and haunt the imagination. From murders to mysteries to haunting spirits, each story presents a look into the past from the view of the present day.

Murder at the Musuem and other Stories was a fascinating read.
The characters interacting with the local legends, she has obviously throughly researched,gave depth to the "Fruithills" legends she has unfolded for us. I almost feel as if I know some of the charaters,
they are so well developed.
I am familiar with Rosemary's writing, having read a lot of it on line, and was pleased to fianally have the chance to own one of her books, have it in my hand, and on my bookshelf.
I will certainly look forward to another collection of her writing in print.
Congratualations Rosemary.
And thank you for taking the time to autograph it for me, that was truely a nice personal touch. It was well worth a trip to the "Fruithills", even in this terrible weather, knowing I would be going home, curling up by a roaring fire at home and enjoying it again and again.
While I eagerly await her next collection.

I'm not normally a fan of these sort of historical supernatural fiction books, but this one really works. As an area resident I recognized many of the locations in the stories and found myself wondering where fact ended and fiction started. Great book for the bedside, and a good gift to give to friends who are no longer living in this area, who can reminise of their time in the "fruit hills" and experience "homecoming" without the drive.
About The Author
Author bio image
Sharing a September 15 birthday with author Agatha Christie, RoseMary Sherwin McDaniel penned her own stories from the age of 5.

But her serious adult writing efforts were concentrated in Indiana and Michigan historical writing that led to a weekly genealogical column in an area newspaper.

However, it was not until she retired after a 50+ years corporate career and joined a writer's group in a small town near the Fruithills that she was able to devote more time to her writing.
