Picture the Dead

Yes, I know that's a disconcerting title for a blog post. It's also the title of a book that I just finished by Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown.
This ghost story, set during the Civil War, has a little something for everyone. It appealed to my taste for historical fiction, but I know that those that like their books on the spooky side will like it as well. Also, there's a love story (but don't worry, it doesn't dominate the story!)
The title, Picture the Dead, refers to the practice of "spiritualist photography."
I'll have this book in my classroom collection when school starts.
