Echoes among the stones


Jamie Jo Wright


Bethany House






378 pages


Two stories told by two narrators but, of course, intersecting at some point. Agnes Dunkirk, known as Aggie, finds herself moving in with her grandmother, Mumsie, after losing her job. She knew she could get in trouble for her own mistakes but never thought about the mistakes made by her subordinates. So now with no job, she is off to Wisconsin to work in the office of the local cemetery. Talk about a comeuppance! She hasn’t seen Mumsie in years and is surprised to see how out of sync she seems, agonizing over an old murder and even recreating it in a doll house.

Aggie ends up working with an irritating archaeologist, attractive but irritating nevertheless. Mysteries and mishaps seem to dog their steps as they uncover a crime and a perpetrator determined to keep it a secret, at all costs.

Back in 1946, the story really began when Imogene Grayson discovered her sister’s dead body, murdered in their home. Imogene had her sights set on Hollywood but now fancies herself a detective, determined to find her sister’s killer, without losing her own life. When the two stories intersect, it is time to bring justice to Hazel Grayson and peace to Mumsie!
