Ruth Fielding and the Red Mill


I just started the Ruth fielding series with the very first book- Ruth Fielding of the Red Mill.  I downloaded the first 18 books on my kindle for free- yes, these are free on kindle.  Although there are 30 in all in the series, the last 7 or so by Mildred Wert Benson who is the writer of Nancy Drew books  are not on kindle.

These dated books make you smile as the automobile is called a machine one time in the book.   It’s well written with a plot and a few subplots.  In my mind Ruth Fielding looks like Cherry Aimes from the Cherry Aims books of the 1940’s.  

In this first book, Ruth Fielding is on the train going to her mom’s uncle who runs the Mill  outside of  town.  I haven’t even investigated the author yet.  I’ll do that after I read one or two more.  It’s great to have free books for the kindle!
