Dr. Evan Salters thought the elderly lady who knocked on his door one evening was just a nosy neighbor, or perhaps an over-enthusiastic historian eager to tell him tales of the property that he and his family just bought. Iris was certainly mysterious and vague in her references to the history of the place and, in particular, a graveyard at the top of his property. It’s not until she appeals to his senses as a doctor that he decides to explore the old cemetery on his property to see if a bigger tale evolves. Sure enough, the cemetery not only exists but holds a captivating story that weaves the past and present into a tale of the dead helping the living. Is it supernatural, or just learning from history? Find out in They Roam Those Hills by W.D. McComb.

I thoroughly enjoyed They Roam Those Hills because it’s truly a captivating tale of how history can have not only an interest for but an influence on those in the present as well. Too few people care to find out about times and places that came before them, when in fact those are some of the most captivating and interesting tales in life! W.D. McComb brings this to life in a fast-paced and intriguing story that emphasizes themes of faith, family, friendship, and survival in a world where nature remembers even if the rest of the world changes. An excellent story that will stay with you long after the last page. I loved it!
