A Sound Among the Trees by Susan Meissner (Chapter 1 Excerpt)

A Sound Among the Trees by Susan Meissner (Chapter 1 Excerpt)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,754 |Likes:
On a historic Fredericksburg street, Holly Oak stands in quiet elegance. The cannonball wedged between stone and timber is a silent reminder of what the house endured in the Civil War. When Marielle Bishop marries into the Holly Oak family, she soon hears rumors that the ghost of Susannah Page, a Yankee spy, haunts Holly Oak's halls, longing for pardon. But 83-year-old Adelaide whispers to Marielle that is not her great-grand- mother who is the ghost, but the house itself that is caught in a limbo of regret, unable to reinvent itself as a place of refuge. As Marielle struggles to fit into her new role as wife and stepmother, haunted by the strange aura of sorrow she feels inside Holly Oak's walls, she must reconcile her belief that it is people - not houses - that hang onto the past.

NEW FROM AWARD-WINNING, CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED AUTHOR: The Shape of Mercy, which received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, won the ECPA Christian Book of the Year award in the Fiction category. Susan's 2010 release Lady in Waiting also received a starred review from Publishers Weekly.
