Editorial Reviews

Review

From Helen Chappell, a native and resident of Talbot County and one of the very best writers in the region, comes observation and musing about dead people, graveyards, tombstones, funerals, burials, and grieving customs around the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, Virginia, and D.C... Being witty as well as serious about death in the same book is a risky business, of course. But Chappell manages it handily... The best-written and most entertaining new book on the subject.

(John Goodspeed Easton Star Democrat)

Book Description

From the author of The Oysterback Tales, a unique and elegiac look at the region's past and its tales of love and tragedy, loss and remembrance.
