The Second Mrs. Hockaday

51dmdf4zc4lThe Second Mrs. Hockaday, by Susan Rivers, is a Civil War era mystery told in letters and diary entries. It is a very short book and a quick and pleasant read. I was a little confused at first by the timing of everything and was glad that I had the physical book, instead of reading it on my Kindle, so I could easily flip back and forth. Basically, Placidia marries a man far older than she two days before he heads out to fight in the Civil War. About a year after he leaves, she has a baby who dies and is found buried in their yard. How all of this transpires, you have to read to find out! It’s worth picking up.
