Frustrated with his job as a high school science teacher, Frank Blaine enjoyed his rare weekends participating in Civil War battle re-enactments. It is a passion he shares with his young son, Steve, and several neighbor pals. This particular year they are near Ramsey, Virginia, the site of the Pine Creek Battlefield, where, back in 1864, the Union Army fought fiercely to thwart a Confederate excursion northward.
All is going as planned when, in the middle of one exercise, Frank encounters other soldiers not part of his company. They are soldiers who suddenly materialize and then vanish in the blink of an eye…as if they weren’t really there. Without any clear rationalization for these encounters, Frank begins to suspect the impossible. He’s being confronted by ghosts from the actual battle. And if so, why?
Author Wayne Carey spins a suspenseful story about a hundred year old secret that can no longer remain hidden…even if the dead must at long last tell the tale.
