“A haunting story fraught with danger and intrigue, The Green Dress will leave you with a bittersweet remembrance of the characters long after you read the last page."
–Michelle Griep, Christy award-winning author of Once Upon a Dickens Christmas

“I’m always up for a true crime read, and Liz Tolsma’s latest foray into the seedier days of life ... had me turning the pages as fast as possible. It’s difficult to believe such villainous stories grace our history books, and Tolsma does a wonderful job in bringing them to fictional form.”
–Jaime Jo Wright, author of Echoes among the Stones and Christy-Award winning, The House on Foster Hill
“Suspense rooted in the impossible and wrapped in love. Chilling without being gruesome, The Green Dress will keep you up long past your bedtime, and you might lose a few fingernails along the way. Recommended for anyone looking for an excuse to stay up into the wee hours and shiver at the slightest shifting shadow.”
–Chautona Havig, author of the Amazon bestselling Aggie’s Inheritance and Past Forward series
