Third starred review for In the Shadow of Blackbirds

In the Shadow of Blackbirds
by Cat Winter
Abrams Books
978-1-4197-0530-4, $16.95

School Library Journal joins Booklist and Publishers Weekly in praising th historical fiction novel:

"Winters deftly combines mystery, ghost story, historical fiction, and romance. The character development is not deep, but the excellent pacing and deliciously creepy descriptions of Spiritualism more than make up for it; the story and setting are atmospheric and eerie. Black-and-white photos are scattered throughout the book, giving context to the time period."
