Definitely a four star story. Susan Coryell has written another fascinating and complicated plot.
A successful author, Ashby Overton is thrust into turbulent memories from the Civil War from former plantation slaves. Susan Coryell takes her heroine from a happy life at Overhome Estate in Southern Virginia into dark secrets from that war-torn era.
When Professor Ellis O. Grady produces items that indicate his claim to be an Overton, Ashby’s sixth sense is aroused. She is drawn to the abandoned Chapel and cemetery on former Overton property.
The plot twists through more hints of long-buried secrets.
Ashby has to rely on herself to unknot the past and save her family’s heritage.
The only flaw I found was difficulty in keeping track of her large family and various friends.
