After you read them, you will be certain this should be made into a full length book. There are so many questions to be answered and so many stories to tell. I love to read about old mysteries solved through archives and talking to elderly people who remember and reading old diaries. This probably stems from being the daughter of a genealogist and tracking my mother all over towns looking through courthouse records and cemeteries.
In any case, this series is fascinating, and I will be the first in line to read her book, if she writes one.
