I was given the opportunity to review the book A Sound Among the Trees by Susan Meissner, however all opinions are my own.

The back of the book states "A House Shrouded in Time. A Line of Women With a Heritage of Loss.". The story is about an old house that was in the same family for generations. There is also a lot of history involved as well. One of the previous ancestors was said to be a civil war spy. In being such, she was a traitor to her Virginian home. The Matriarch and her son in law, Carson, live in the house with his 2 children. There is a rumor that the house is haunted, but when Carson's new wife, Marielle, moves in she is determined to find out the truth. She soon learns that there is more to the story when she finds a journal, and a long lost relative returns with hidden information.

Marielle makes friends with her new surroundings, but can not quite make peace with them. Then through her new friend she finds some interesting paperwork. I could not put the book down until I read all of the paperwork. It was a really good book and was hard to put down. It was also historical, and had a very interesting love story as . I also enjoyed seeing the generations of women and how the heritage affected them.
