For the Bell children, the end of the summer is not the end of adventures and ***
The block has changed and the house that the children watched being moved is replaced by a new church and the steeple, the bell tower finally complete, becomes the tower to adventure.
The adventures, mischief, and tribulations of the children of two neighboring families, the Bells, Rudge, Lanny, and Timmy; and the Collins, Rufus, Sally and Katy. How they deal with catastrophe, help each other and manage to find a missing diamond necklace by misadventure and happenstance.
Action under pressure, not stunned shock or paralysis, but thinking and doing. …………. in more ways than one; and a missing diamond and ruby necklace strikes a tone and a fire in a sunset.
