Book reviews by Monica Drahonovsky, who is a columnist for non-non-profit news site, InDepthNH.org.

The story begins in 1870 and ends today. You will learn all about what happened after the Civil War, PTSD of the time, greed, ranches, gold miners and ghosts. I recommend this book heartily. It is a really good change of pace kind of thriller. The characters are interesting with stories of their own and the ghosts are nice, if not loveable. Take your time and enjoy this thriller.
