Nobody's Secret by Michaela MacColl
Emily Dickinson is a precocious young woman who is trying to find her place in an archaic society. One day, she meets a mysterious young man who does not want her to know who his family is. In fact, she does not even know his name. She begins to call him Mr. "Nobody". After a couple of chance meetings, they make a plan to meet at another time. However, he does not show for this meeting. She is heartbroken, but she is distracted when a dead man's body is found in the family's pond. Emily sneaks in to see who the man is and realizes that it is the same man she has named Mr. "Nobody". Now, she sets off to see if she can figure out who he is and why he came to town in the first place.
I loved this book. It was a quick read that had a bit of history, a bit of romance, and a lot of mystery. Definitely a good choice for reading.
