I recently read A Sound Among the Trees by Susan Meissner. This is the Third book by her that I have read, and I have enjoyed them all She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. The story is about ghosts, a creepy house, second chances, and letting go of the past. It is set in two time periods, the present day and the Civil War. The author uses both of these setting to tell a interesting story that spans generations. One of the most important characters in the story is Holly Oak, an antebellum mansion that has been in the same family for generations. It seems to have a mind and personality of its own. I really enjoyed this book. It was part mystery, part love story. I would recommend it to readers who like historical fiction.

This book was given to me free by Waterbrook Multnomah for the purpose of review
