One day, Agatha Burkhardt runs away from her family, when her sutior breaks off there engament.

As they try to return home, with Mr.Olmstead, Grandfather Bolte dies. After his funeral, Agatha finally writes and says that she is at college, and the girl who died was not her. She explains that she gave the gown to Darlene to get married, and that Mr.Garrow killed her.

I loved the book One Came Home. I am a huge scifi, and mystery fan, and this book just pulled me in. When I read some of the book, I thought that it was leading onwhere, but it picked up very quickly and turned into a thriller. When they found the ribbion in the girls hair, and Georgie stole it, I felt like the book was jumping off the pages. In cunclusion, I would defeintly reccomend reading the book One Came Home.
