Once upon a time there was a girl (attractive, blond and quite bright) who's dated a guy named Dirk, has a friend called Helen and absolutly nothing to do besides solving mysteries no one would care about. A ghost haunts a mansion in the province.
The story Carolyn Keene is telling pictures us a time where the so called middle class is quite educated and the ones under them are lovely, act mostly dumb, witness some crimes and are afraid because the bad guys shake threateningly theire fists!
It is definitely a time before "Mona Lisa's smile" where girls get married at the lastest they turn twenty one. About time! Meantime they solve mysteries, prepare lunch or supper, entertain old owls and take a walk to enjoy the view! Honestly? but you must not judge too harshly. Nancy Drew is an hero! A female hero! She's quite emancipated! She a strong role model for a girl before our time. You can achieve anything if you take your life in your own hands and pursuits your happiness! The stories of Carolyn Keene are simple and for today out of time but they are an example of the "American Dream"!
