Adele gives an overview of the book:

Jennie Lovell's life is the very picture of love and loss. First she is orphaned and forced to live at the mercy of her stingy relatives. Then her fiance falls on the battlefield, leaving Jennie haunted by the mysterious circumstances of his death. When she forms an unlikely alliance with a spirit photographer, Jennie begins to uncover secrets of the man she thought she loved. With her sanity on edge and life in the balance, can Jennie expose the chilling truth before someone-- or something -- stops her? A spellbinding mystery set against the vivid, brutal backdrop of the American Civil War.

The old saying that the sum is greater than its parts was never so regularly and delightfully true.
