In The Mystery of the Weeping Rocks, no stone is left unturned. Gray Locke's ten-year-old imagination explodes into life while he goes about problem solving a riddle.
The story begins at his grandparent's house in Western Massachusetts. There, Gray's tenacious curiosity takes him on an odyssey through his Grandmother Windsor's gardens, and off to neighboring lands-where his investigation leads him to such places as an abandoned marble quarry, a brook and caves.
Gray hadn't a clue about weeping rocks. He didn't even know if such a thing ever existed. All he could base his investigation on was what he caught at the tail end of a conversation between his father and uncle.
With his keen sensibility, and wild imagination, Gray is able to create different scenarios about what the weeping rocks may be, before finally learning the truth.
Gray Locke likes riddles and puzzles. And he found the mystery of the weeping rocks a welcome challenge.

Gray Locke woke to the sound of an old wind-up Baby Ben ringing on the nightstand beside his bed. It was one of many clocks tick-tock-ticking around the old homestead. The alarm on Gray's clock was so loud, that it made him jump straight out of bed! He promptly reached over and pushed the alarm button in, to silence its ringing. Then he plopped back down onto the bed, to settle his beating heart.
