This is actually one of my favorite books by this author. It gives you a feeling of how the Civil War shattered so many lives. This story is very haunting and beautiful. There may be a few elements to the story that are slightly unfinished., but overall I loved the story. Sort of an American Gothic!

On Agate Hill

by mooncalf on Apr 1, 2007
