A house shrouded in time.
A line of women with a heritage of loss.

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.

With Adelaide’s richly peppered superstitions and deep family roots at stake, Marielle must sort out the truth about Susannah Page and Holly Oak— and make peace with the sacrifices she has made for love.    

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Baker & Taylor
When Marielle marries Carson Bishop and moves into Holly Oaks, his dead wife's Virginia family home, she investigates stories that the house is haunted by her ancestress, Susannah Page, who is rumored to have been a Civil War spy.

While I was disappointed that there didn't turn out to be a "real" ghost (lol), I was fascinated by how the stories of all the women in the family wove together. A third of the book was devoted to Susannah's letters, and I loved reading about the Civil War through her eyes. I felt like I really got to know all of the women at Holly Oak and empathized with their suffering and determination to overcome adversity.

Boring, boring, boring. I hoped the ghost would soon come and get them all!
