A Sound Among Trees

A Sound Among Trees
Susan Meissner

Marielle has moved into the old family home with her new husband. It's filled with secrets, rumors of ghosts and pictures of the women who have graced it's rooms for hundreds of years.
Marielle is disturbed by the stories that are swirling around her about the home and it's curse on the women who live there. She begins to investigate the stories in an attempt to understand and to help her marriage. The story is a mixture of old and new and proves that things are not always what they appear.

The story started out a bit slow for me and it seemed to take forever for the pieces to begin falling into place. But once I got to the letters written during the Civil War I sped through the rest of the book. The story is well written and brought the horrors of the war to life. It showcased how importantly each decision we make is for our lives. Every decision has an impact on us and those around us.
I will definitely be reading more by this author. I really enjoyed her style of writing.

I received this book free of charge from WaterBrook in exchange for my honest review.
