Civil War re-enactors trying to relive the past call up things they have no concept about and are in a serious fix when things get out of their control. The main characters, past and present, are depicted each in their own chapter and the story switches back and forth in time from the present day to the Civil War days in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee.

An intriquing and entertaining tale told in present time by "Rattler" a Cherokee descendant with the gift of sight while in the Civil War days, the story is told from the point of view of the main characters.

A good read especially if you like ghost stories but, this one is based on real facts. Light romance, no sex and not heavy on the gory details.

Sharyn McCrumb's stories, but just couldn't seem to get into this one. It was just too slow for me. I picked it up more than once & finally decided not to keep on plodding through it.

This is the first book of hers that I haven't cared for. A little too slow going. However, she did a great deal of research, and others will probably like it a lot.
