Review quote

"This is a lovely, sweet coming-of-age story." "VOYA, 3Q 4P M J S ""Lovely descriptions highlight this story for readers who enjoy a bit of history and mystery with their romance." "Booklist ""Wallace deftly uses the Spiritualist fervor of the 1920s period setting to populate her novel with characters who are paralyzed by ghosts of the past, both real and metaphorical, and demonstrates the need to balance honoring the past and living in the present." "The Horn Book Magazine""show more
