Publisher's Summary

Mysterious family secrets lie hidden....

Archelologist Jonas Biggs has been hired to do the dig at Andersonville Prison, the worst POW camp during the Civil War. He has taken along his niece, Savannah Biggs, the only child of his twin brother, John. As the past is uncovered, the Biggs family get much more than they bargained for. Savannah is the only female born since before the war. She wears a Celtic cross given to her by her father, who received it from his father. It has been handed down for generations. At the dig, a second cross, which is a mirror image of Savannah's, is unearthed. A skeleton is discovered at the deadline. What do these two finds have in common and who is behind the mysterious things that keep happening to the family? What terrible secrets are hidden in the finds, and will they be uncovered?

    "Great Civil War History-Mystery"
    Would you listen to A Voice from the Grave again? Why?

    I think once was enough for me.


    What other book might you compare A Voice from the Grave to and why?

    It's not a typical mystery thriller with a current or on-going murder spree. This tells the story in current time, unravelling the mysteries at an archeological dig; and then back in time, as the events were happening at Andersonville.


    What aspect of Diana Andrade’s performance would you have changed?

    ... Weeelll, she was a little toooo sloooow to listen too. She had such a slow southern drawl that you could lose track of the story line as she was getting to the end of a sentence. The story would have been just as powerful, just as suspenceful if she had stepped up the pace a bit ... y'all.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not extreme, but it made me look up some factual info on the actual Andersonville and read more about the Civil War in general.


    Any additional comments?

    Strong women have always wanted to contribute to military service any way they could, even if it meant disguising themselves to do it. I think they were brave precursors to the WACS & WAVES of WWII.

    "Good Story, Bad Narrator"

    This is a well-researched story that works well for fans of the time period (Civil War). However, the narrator sounds like she's reading to a kindergarten class and it's just too hard to get past. Ok, I'm not a southerner, but do all people of the old south speak so slowly they sound lobotomized? And do all southern women have to sound like little girls?

    I'd say read this book rather than listen to this version.

    What did you like best about A Voice from the Grave? What did you like least?

    This book offered me a real unsanatized version of what Prisioners os war endured dung the civil war. The modern story was nicely dispersed between the horrors of the past.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The psychological impact that secrets have upon families and how fear and shame impact people of all ages.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator seemed As if she was a


    Did A Voice from the Grave inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to do more detailed Internet research into Pow camps and the civil war. Especially regardig the camp and characters in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is an excellent story and is well worth the price even though I was not impressed at all with the narration.
