    1. Because isolation, in fact, can make us sometimes see things that aren t there, it should be no surprise that some of the greatest ghost stories are set in the dead of winter And Jeanne Mackin s novel The Sweet By and By a well researched fictional account about the rise of the famous Fox Sisters and the Spiritualist Movement told in tandem with the story of a writer named Helen who is haunted by her past is no exception The story opens in the middle of winter in upstate New York in Helen s ramb [...]


    2. I enjoyed this book than my rating suggests, both for its own sake and for having just come off a long and tedious novel that needed restraint At this point in my life, the Fox sisters Maggie, Katie, and Leah are old friends They have accompanied me through many books, both fiction and nonfiction Even if I have known them in better circumstances, they are always welcome and delightful to spend time with.Mackin s book is at its best when focusing on the Fox sisters The language is simple, but t [...]


    3. I received this book from my Mother in law a year before she passed away I found it and started reading It was a very slow read for me It became my before bed book I read 10 pages and fall asleep Which was nice As I got to the middle it became very hard to put down When I did it put my thoughts in a dark place This book is about a woman named Helen who has to write an article about Maggie Fox A true person this touchs so much on the lost of a person and how some have such a hard way of letting g [...]


    4. This was the story of Maggie Fox, the founder of Spiritulism Historical fiction is one of my favorite genre s and this book did not disappoint Maggie s story is interspersed with the story of a woman who is writing a magazine article about her Tragedy has touched Helen s life, but she does not believe in spirits As she digs into Maggie s story, Helen starts to hear a strange knocking sound in her century old home Could it possibly be her dead lover coming back to console her This book was writte [...]


    5. Jeanne Mackin s thoroughly researched history of Maggie Fox, the founder of American Spiritualism, is nearly as enjoyable as the fictional environment from which she relates the tale By co mingling what was and is of the 19th Century religious movement, the author leads the reader to take seriously the influence of spirits in a way Fox herself would have appreciated Mackin s preferred genre is historical fiction, and she shines with this tale demonstrating how easily people can be led into the w [...]


    6. This fictional account takes us back to the time when the Fox sisters convinced many people that they were able to connect with people on the other side As the writer in this story researches and writes about the Fox sisters, occurrences in her own life make it difficult for her to be as skeptical of the claims that she is writing about as she thinks she should be.
