Bailey MacDonald and The Secret of the Sealed Room

Bailey is back!  The second book by Bailey MacDonald is published next month.

The Secret of the Sealed Room: A Mystery of Young Benjamin Franklin is the story of indentured servant Patience Martin, living in 1721 Boston.  Things get harder when her demanding employer is found dead - in a bedroom locked from the inside. Powerful townsmen accuse Patience's friend, Moll Bacon, of being a witch and the murderer, but with her own future in jeopardy, Patience doesn't know how she can help prove Moll's innocence - until she finds a new friend. 

Ben Franklin is a clever young printer's apprentice with a fondness for wise aphorisms. Ben risks his own skin to protect Patience, and his cunning and ingenuity are a perfect match for her courage and determination. But will their friendship and teamwork be enough to solve the mystery, clear Moll, and free Patience from a harsh life of servitude?

MacDonald is a professional actress and playwright who lives near Atlanta, Georgia and when she is not writing, she performs under a different name in a theater group in that city.
