This moving devoir to a lost sister is memoir, history, confession, biography, and saint's life. It illuminates the importance of God, family, friendship, fidelity, and community. It is painful, honest, helpful, and hopeful. It paints in vivid colors the beauty of authentic Southern Christian culture, and an authentic Southern Christian woman. Highly recommended.

"There were in antebellum America no loyalty oaths or pledges of allegiance to the flag or the nation. Freeborn American citizens would have considered such to be an insult to their patriotism as well as an invasion of the rights of their states."
-Clyde N. Wilson, "The Future of American Nationalism," in From Union to Empire: Essays in the Jeffersonian Tradition

Russell Kirk, the great American man of letters, wrote mostly non-fiction, but he also wrote twenty-two superb, unsettling ghostly tales. I maintain a web site called Ghostly Kirk that is dedicated to these stories. Enjoy this site, but, better still, read the marvelous tales! Happy All Hallows Eve, All Hallows (Saints) Day, and All Souls Day.
