The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline: An Enola Holmes Mystery

Author: Nancy Springer
Publisher: Philomel Books

Enola may have met her match with…Florence Nightingale?

For Enola, who has been longing for her absent mother, it’s difficult to make personal connections. Other than her occasional run-ins with her brother Sherlock, Enola doesn’t have many people in her life, except her landlady, Mrs. Tupper. While she’s nearly deaf and can’t cook to save her life, Mrs. Tupper is endearing—really the closest thing Enola has to family these days. So imagine her horror when Enola comes home to find Mrs. Tupper kidnapped! Who would take her, and why? And what does Florence Nightingale have to do with it? There must be more to the kind, homely Mrs. Tupper than meets the eye. Enola will put absolutely everything at risk to find Mrs. Tupper. And whoever took her had better watch out—because this time, it’s personal.
