The Lovereading4Kids comment

It’s six months later, and the children who featured in the author's debut, Paradise Barn, find themselves in the midst of another intriguing set of events. After a train is blown up, the people in the village of Great Deeping become aware that there’s a spy in their midst, which threatens to spoil Molly’s plans for a carefree Easter holidays. However, the children soon become distracted by looking for buried treasure. And as their search continues they find more than they bargained for. Deeping Secrets is well imagined and cleverly plotted with its backdrop a brilliant recreation of wartime in rural Norfolk with vividly wrought characters about whom you care deeply.
