Book Description
Seventeen-year-old Mia Randall longs for someone to take her mind off her heartrending breakup with her first real boyfriend. When she meets Benjamin, he does exactly that.

There’s only one problem. He’s a ghost.

Private Benjamin Alexander Richards, a Confederate soldier, is captivated by Mia the moment he lays eyes on her. He declares that Mia is his soul mate, despite the fact that she was born nearly a century and a half after he died.

But that's not their only obstacle. A much more menacing ghost lurks nearby. One summer evening by the light of a full moon, a ghostly encounter entangles Mia's life with Benjamin's in a way that she never imagined.
My Thoughts
While I can't say I fell completely in love with this book, I did find it a thoroughly enjoyable read.
With a hint of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander Series, we are drawn back in time with Mia and Benjamin as they escape the terrifying gatekeeper.
There is a good progression in the character development, and all the characters are likeable and relatable.   While the romantic side of Mia and Benjamin's story progresses slowly, I didn't really feel any chemistry between them.
For the most part it is well written, however, there are some areas that I found to be a little confusing and had to re-read them to make sure I fully understood what the author was trying to say.
Overall, I liked this book, and will be interested in reading Book 2 in the series to see where the story goes.
