Deborah Healabout this book: Do you know about the Sears catalog houses? I had only a faint understanding before I did the research for More Than Meets the Eye. Believe it or not, at one time you could order the house of your dreams from the Sears catalog and have it arrive in precisely cut and labeled pieces via boxcar. It came with all the nails, wood trim, electrical parts, and plumbing fixtures to build your house. Sears even threw in two trees for the front yard. And all for only $500 or so.
Carlinville, Illinois has the largest contiguous collection of Sears catalog houses in the world. They were built in 1918, and the story of why and how is interesting enough on its own, but when I discovered that the construction was supervised by Elizabeth Spaulding—a woman in 1918!—I was intrigued.
Merri and Brett find it equally intriguing. And Elizabeth's faith and character inspire Merri to be the same kind of woman. And as Brett helps Merri remodel her dream home they wish they could order a few things from the Sears catalog at 1918 prices.
I won't give away the mystery referred to in the title, but it was inspired by a newspaper article I read many years ago. It was so creepy that I've never forgotten it.
