"Ginger Stuyvesant, an American heiress living in London during World War I, is engaged to Captain Benjamin Harford, an intelligence officer. Ginger is a medium for the Spirit Corps, a special Spiritualist force. Each soldier heading for the front is conditioned to report to the mediums of the Spirit Corps when they die so the corps can pass instant information about troop movements to military intelligence. Ginger and her fellow mediums contribute a great deal to the war efforts, so long as they pass the information through appropriate channels. While Ben is away at the front, Ginger discovers the presence of a traitor. Without the presence of her fiancé to validate her findings, the top brass thinks she's just imagining things. Even worse, it is clear that the Spirit Corps is now being directly targeted by the German war effort. Left to her own devices, Ginger has to find out how the Germans are targeting the Spirit Corps and stop them. It's a difficult and dangerous task for a woman of that era, but both the spirit and the flesh are willing...."--

I really enjoyed this. It was a different take on the period books that are so popular right now. Her sense of setting and atmosphere are terrific, and the mixture of real history and imagined events is refreshing. It is nice to read a "fantasy" novel (this is really historical fiction to me) that is not populated by sexy vampires and buff werewolves... :)

Although I found it a bit plodding at first, I eventually came to appreciate the characters and setting.
