"Hand over your weapons!" one policeman commanded Jigson. "Turn around with your hands up high!" "This is a terrible mistake!" Abby cried, jumping to her feet and rushing to the first policeman's side. "You need to catch those men! This man is not a real criminal, but those thugs who are escaping . . . are!" The Bakers are full of excitement as they head to the English countryside to celebrate Grandfather Wilson's eightieth birthday. But when an elderly neighbor with Alzheimer's disease tells a tale of treasure lost on the high seas, the Bakers are sure she has confused reality with fiction. But as they find information that supports Old Marge's story, they begin wondering whether there is truth in it after all. Can the discovery of an ancient treasure help Old Marge stay in her beloved cottage and out of a nursing home? This question sends the Bakers on a swashbuckling adventure of mystery and peril, following an old diary through mysterious caves and a maze of clues in search of the missing treasure. Along the way, their quest is marked by amazing providences that point to this key conclusion: God's ways are always right and true. The Baker Family Adventures series follows the exciting lives of Mr. and Mrs. Baker and their four children: responsible Phil, sensible Abby, daring Andy, and inquisitive Tom. The Bakers are a Christian homeschooling family who, in their desire to help others, frequently find themselves in dangerous situations where they must grow in courage and learn important lessons of godliness. Peril on Providence Island is Book Two in the Baker Family Adventures series.
