The Mystery at Midnight
During a class field trip to visit the monastery of the Poor Clares, Katie is unexpectedly swept up into her second Chime Travelers adventure. She finds herself in Assisi, the same city where her twin brother Patrick met St. Francis of Assisi on his last journey through time.
Instead of meeting St. Francis, Katie meets a young woman named Clare. Clare has everything—she’s beautiful, her family is wealthy, and she is to be married soon. Katie discovers that Clare also has a secret: she wants to leave everything behind and join Francis and his brothers in service to God.
But Clare’s family doesn’t want her to go. On the night she leaves, Clare and Katie must run through the darkness and escape through a door only used for funerals, the Door of the Dead. Has Clare made a mistake? Is God really calling her to leave everything she knows behind? And should Katie go with her on this dangerous adventure?

I love the Chime Travelers books, and hope to eventually collect them all! Did I mention they’re written for kids? I want to collect them all, and I’m a grown up! My 3 year old daughter has loved listening to these stories as well.
These books are full of adventure and surprise. Clare’s zeal is contagious, and Katie soon finds herself wanting to imitate Clare’s decisions. Your children may want to imitate Clare, too, after reading this book!
I absolutely love when chapter books have pictures, as they are engaging for small children, and hold the attention of my 3 year old. The Chime Travelers books are filled with adorable, fun illustrations!
Jen Bower is the illustrator, and she has a style all her own! I have enjoyed turning the pages to see what cute little scene is coming up next.
These books are truly universal and that invite everyone to discover the riches of the Faith we hold in our hearts.
“The Mystery at Midnight” would make a wonderful gift for any child. It can be read aloud to small children. It can be read with a parent for those learning to read. Children can also read it themselves, of course. And adults will also delight in following along with these well-written gems!
