Read this review on my blog! --> Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin

Jennie’s beloved, Will, was killed in battle. At least that’s the official story. She believes that his spirit lingers in the cold Pritchett house and that he has unfinished business. Clues have been surfacing that point to something different. Something that could prove Will was not who she thought.

She decides to look for answers in the one person who seems to know what really happened, Will’s brother, Quinn. However, she doesn’t expect to find comfort and hope in him instead. While their romance blooms, Will’s presence and other more significant clues keep showing up, now making her question everything.

In Picture the Dead, Adele Griffin tells an eerie story full of mystery and suspense set in one of my favorite eras in history, the Civil War. And together with this mysterious tale, Lisa Brown has created some vivid illustrations to go along with it. Both of these elements together, along with some unexpected twists, sucked me in and made it difficult to put this book down until I knew everything there was to know. The end was awesomely twisty and it definitely surprised me.
