 “A Sound Among the Trees” by Susan Meissner

Adelaide has lived at Holly Oak all her life, about 87 years. She raise her daughter Caroline there and also Caroline’s daughter Sarah, when Sarah married Carson they lived with Adelaide also. Then Sarah died and after four years of mourning her loss Carson married Marielle; his new wife, lives at Holly Oak with not only Adelaide but also Sarah and Carson’s children, isn’t that a difficult situation? Then to top it off it is said that Holly Oak is haunted by Susannah Paige’s spirit, who was rumored to be a union spy during the civil war. What really happened with Susannah? What will happen with Marielle?

At first I have to admit I was not so interested in the book, not until after the first 50 pages was I actually captivated by the story and its characters. The story was amazing yet tragic; the reader learns of Susannah Paige and what she suffered during her long tragic life, it is actually very emotional. The reader also learns about the other characters though and the events that take place in their lives, it really is a story of loss and pain. Still I think Meissner did an exceptional job bringing this type of story to life, I rate it 4.5 stars.
