When Marielle married Carson, she knew he had been married before. For the sake of his children, she agreed to live in his first wife's family home with Sara's aging grandmother. She knew she might have to contend with Carson's memories of Sara, but she never dreamed she might be dealing with a Civil War-era ghost. Susan Meissner's novel is a gripping read, especially for anyone interested in the Civil War. The chapters dealing with Susannah and her involvement with both the Union and the Confederate soldiers really held my interest. Her historic details were correct, which adds realism to the story. Also, for anyone who has ever felt that they were overwhelmed by the "ghosts" of past relationships, this is a must read.
