Interesting way to look at death. It took me 80 pages to get into the book then I enjoyed it. I also had the wrong Lincoln, which did not help at the beginning. I liked how the historical records were interwoven into the story with the ghosts. I also liked how Vollmer and Blevins wanted what was best and right for Willie. They were funny at times. The three bachelors and their hats were comic relief. I liked how we readers got to learn more about the cemetery inhabitants as they tell their stories in their own words. Some are very quick. Others linger. Not what I expected but worth reading.
