This is a fascinating work of historical fiction. It interweaves three strands--World War I, the Spanish Flu epidemic, and the spiritualist movement. Beyond that, it is gripping and a bit romantic. Great character development.

"It's 1918, and while millions of soldiers die in World War I and influenza ravages the American home front, many grieving people turn to séances and spiritualism for comfort. But scientific Mary Shelley Black is skeptical of such practices - until she's visited by the ghost of her true love Stephen, who was killed in the war…or so she believed. Could darker and more sinister forces have caused his death? If you like the atmospheric creepiness of Ransom Riggs' Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, you'll love this eerie, spine-chilling blend of romance, ghost story and mystery."
