Friends of the Forest who enjoy reading old novels will enjoy this month's book club pick, The Vanished Messenger by E. Phillips Oppenheim. In fact, most of this book is a mystery to me since I haven't read it yet. I hear it's very Edwardian and spooky, with a touch of romance. What really got me was the cover, as I was searching for a book that was both forest and spooky this month. I'm happy to announce that I think this book will be just perfect. Download it at Project Gutenburg for free and come back on October 30th to discuss your impressions of The Vanished Messenger!
