Ruth Fielding Homeward Bound

Alice B. Emerson

"I will go downstairs with you--" The sentence was never finished. Out of the air, almost over their heads, fell a great, whining shell. The noise of it before it exploded was like a knife-thrust to the hearts of the frightened girls. Jennie and Helen clung to each other in the open doorway of Ruth's cell. Their braver companion had not left the window. Then came the shuddering crash which rocked the hospital and all the taller buildings about it!

Ruth Fielding Homeward Bound; or A Red Cross Worker’s Ocean Perils is the 15th in this 30-volume series from the Stratemeyer Syndicate. Alice B. Emerson was the pseudonym for various authors of the series, including Mildred Wirt Benson (author of Nancy Drew and many other series). In this story Ruth has an exciting trip home from the Great War (World War I) to help her parents.
