A Sound Among Trees By Susan Mesinger

As a young bride, Susannah Page was rumored to be a Civil War spy for the North, a traitor to her Virginian roots. Her great-granddaughter Adelaide, the current matriarch of Holly Oak, doesn’t believe that Susannah’s ghost haunts the antebellum mansion looking for a pardon, but rather the house itself bears a grudge toward its tragic past.

When Marielle Bishop marries into the family and is transplanted from the arid west to her husband’s home, it isn’t long before she is led to believe that the house she just settled into brings misfortune to the women who live there.
 My Thoughts: This was a wonderful story of a house and the women who lived in it and thier personal tragedies and heartache. The beginging  was a bit slow for me but by the time I reached 137 pages it got better Characters were well written. i actually enjoyed this one alot more than I did Lady in waiting. Thanks to blogging for books for the chance to review this book.
