"The Second Mrs. Hockaday" by Susan Rivers. ***

  • Audiobook
  • US author
  • Originally published in 2017
  • Debut Novel
  • Review:  This story, told in the now ubiquitous style of non-chronological narrative, was quite good.   I am weary of the style, but the characters and story were compelling.  Set during the Civil War,  and told via diaries and letters, it is the tale of a young woman on her own, trying to run her new husband's plantation while he is at war.  Events transpire in a mysterious manner which require the majority of the novel to clarify.  The mysteries of family history comprise the central theme.  Nice novel.
