Teri S. (ladylibris) I read this fiction book a decade ago, and am trying to remember the title and author. I'm a librarian, so I've done a lot of searching already, but for some reason I can't track this down. The author simply takes each grave/person in turn and tells the stories of their lives and deaths. Some are tragic, some are not. I think it was written sometime between the 1920s-1940s and the author's first name is Edmund/Edward/Edmond. I'm beginning to think I'm nuts and never actually read this book! Help!
