WILDERS WALK AWAY

A well written whodunit with an original, but perhaps a bit too generous, plot. A young newsphotographer assigned to a story on Wilders Lane, a Vermont Williamsburg, learns something of antiques and solves the mystery of who ""Other people die of mumps, Or general decay, Of fever, chills or other ills, But Wilders walk away"". With the aid of an old Revolutionary journal, a potato bin, and some almost too brilliant deductions, the legend of supernatural shenanigans, which has been the Wilders' from early times until the present when Ellen, the youngest Wilder, walks out of the house never to be seen again is dispelled. Holds together and should satisfy all fans.
