NEWS: Susan Meissner Guest Blog Featured on

Susan Meissner, author of the novel A Sound Among the Trees (released October 4, 2011), wrote a guest blog post for the eHarmony relationship blog, entitled “Not All Baggage Is Bad.”  

In the book, Marielle Bishop, who has watched all her friends marry and begin families, has at last found love online. She leaves the Arizona desert to marry a Virginia widower, joining him and his two children —and his first wife’s grandmother— in an ancestral family home where it seems like ghosts are everywhere, real and imagined.  As Marielle struggles to fit into her new role as wife and stepmother, unsettled by the strange sense of sorrow she feels inside Holly Oak’s walls, she must uncover the truth about Susannah, and reconcile her belief that it is people—not houses—that hang on to the past.  History can’t be undone, but truth uncovered can set the women of Holly Oak free.  Start reading chapter 1 now.

In her blog, Susan shares insights on how to give the past a proper place in a new relationship.  Read it here.
