This collection of tales focuses on the restless souls left in the wake of the War Between the States. Roberts gathers history from both sides of the lines, from Georgia to New York to Texas, and presents it from viewpoints both historical and present. By blending her passion for ghost stories with her Southern heritage, Roberts crafts a book which haunts the reader in the same way the Civil War haunts the memory of the United States.
