This book consists of five stories, Whispers Down the Lane, Secret in the Willows, Catch a Falling Star, Night of the Fireflies, and A Cry in the Dark. The first story is about when Merry protects her abused friend. The second one is about Merry trying to help her neighbors find out who is vandalizing their farm and she befriend a special ed boy. Catch a Falling Star is about Merry deciding between who she likes the most and is the best for her. The fourth is about a neighbor getting in an accident and the neighbors' grandfather writing a poem. The last one is about when Merry finds an abandoned baby. It's a REALLY good Christian and just overall inspirational book.
