Only divine intervention could have guided Jolena Leigh Michaelsson to the doorstep of a ramshackle manor in Pennsylvania, bringing her face-to-face with the man she has waited her whole life to find. There is just one problem. Mathias McGregor died two centuries ago--
Mathias, Revolutionary War ranger and spy, battles his conscience and his heart when he finds himself falling for the beautiful violinist invading his home. Jolena is mortal and deserves far more than what he as a spirit can offer her.
When Jolena's family motto leads them to unearth a valuable coded message--the very message Mathias died trying to deliver to General Washington--Jolena vows to unravel the mystery surrounding the cryptic document. But someone else wants the message, and he'll stop at nothing to get it, not even murder.
Divine intervention brought them together--will it also allow them to find forever?
This book drew me in immediately and kept my attention to the last page. There are so many fabulous layers, from the ghosts Jo befriends - and the five have distinctly different personalities - to the suspense, romance and history.
The suspense spanned decades, as there was the storyline with the spirits whose business was interrupted during the Revolutionary War as well as the current day threat to Jo from a man who wants to discover the secrets Jo is trying to find herself.
The romance with Mathias is both touching and heartbreaking as he died two centuries earlier. The author kept me guessing all the way to the end. Would they unite on the other side? Or would they remain a couple on Earth even if he's in spirit form only? Or would he eventually move on like the captain in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir?
The history and curator details were also fascinating to me. I haven't read much fiction regarding the Revolutionary War in America so this was new to me. I loved finding out about war spies and numbers used in secret messages.
In fact, I loved the whole book. The only thing that would have made it better is if it didn't have to end!
