A Sound Among the Trees by Susan Meissner

It doesn't happen very often that I read a book (totally mesmerized the whole time) and finish it to find the only thing I can say is, "wow." That is exactly what this book did for me. It blew me away. Meissner has solidified her place as a top author with this one, it's sure to win awards.

This story follows the life of Marielle Bishop as she marries widowed Carson and moves into the family mansion in Fredricksburg, Virginia. The family mansion of his deceased wife, rumored to be full of ghosts. Marielle spends time trying to learn more about his first wife and learns more than Carson wants her to know. She hears rumors of the ghosts and Adelaide, the family matriarch, is all too willing to lead her down the path of a ghost hunt.

This book twisted and turned several times and ended up visiting the Civil War era. Truly fascinating reading.

Thank you, Susan, for this CLEAN READ. I truly enjoyed it. I've read all of this author's books and this has to be her best work yet.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
