Patricia Apelt returns to the literary limelight with the release of “Green Mountain Mysteries and Ship Shadows” (published by Archway Publishing). The novel follows the ups and downs and lessons in the everyday life of the Melrose Farm family.

A sequel to “Circumstantial Connections,” this second novel of the “Melrose Farm” series narrates how a unique farm family, led by a loving matriarch, must face several obstacles and solve an ancient mystery. Readers follow the family’s plight as they divide the Melrose Farm and experience a hotel fire, lost children, a collapsed dam and raging river, hidden tunnels and caves, a plane crash, a potentially unsuccessful business adventure, and an unexpected pregnancy. Ultimately, their trials teach them how they are stronger together than they are apart.

“It is a ‘feel good’ story, with conflicts and concerns over what is going on in their lives, but with a happy ending,” Apelt says. “It gives a few hours of separation from the readers’ own lives and lets them become involved it a world with no politics, violence, hatred or bias.”
