I Highly Recommend...
The characters are well-developed and are permitted to stretch and to grow beyond what we originally might expect. The Civil War portions of the book are clear and believable, allowing the reader to imagine the suffering of the era. I highly recommend Whispers from the Grave to Civil War buffs, mystery lovers, and, of course, all true romantics. Rating: 5 Tombstones (out of 5).
