I am not normally a fan of historical fiction, but then again, A Sound Among the Trees is not your typical historical fiction novel.
Ghosts. A cursed Civil War estate. Lost letters. Hidden journals. Buried soldiers. Have I piqued your interest yet?
Susan Meissner breathed life into well rounded, three dimensional characters. She also presented a story I could see unfolding before my eyes. (Being a visual learner, that’s a very good thing.)
As I’ve said countless times before, I’m all about relationships. And this book is filled with the dynamics of many different relationships – among the living, the dead, and a combination thereof.
I don’t want to give too much away, but as a Christian, I don’t typically read “ghost stories,” but just as this isn’t a typical historical fiction, it isn’t a typical ghost story either.
This book is definitely written for a female audience. The cast is made up almost entirely of women.
I highly recommend this book and would give it a four or four and a half out of five.

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