Reviews - What do customers think about Death Beyond the Willows?

A Small World, Indeed  Jan 30, 2006
This was a very enjoyable book to read. I was impressed with Mr. Peck's commiment to detail and the amount of research he took on to explore the lives of these families. After reading it, I felt like I knew them personally. I find myself wanting to visit the sites he writes about.
Every life holds a library of stories...  Dec 27, 2005
Two factors caused me to buy Death Beyond the Willows as soon as I learned of its publication: 1. I was intrigued by the mystery of a tragedy happening on a wedding day, and 2. I live in south central WI and was acquainted with the communities (Marshall and Portage) involved in the tragedy. I intended to read the book chapter-by-chapter complementary to other books and projects. I started reading, "A Gay and Romantic Ceremony" with the description of the little village of Marshall, WI... I was intrigued by the quote, "It was like a dream wedding" and interested in the careful description of the area then (1920's) and now... I was hooked and read straight through the book.

The author, Greg Peck, has deftly woven details from the lives of the people so that the reader gains keen awareness of "real" life in the 1920's. The interviews with persons who lived through the tragic wedding day and its aftermath make the story very personal... even emotional. The fact that Peck is a native of Marshall, WI and that the tragic story was part of the experience of his own father and uncles makes his writing very effective because he has the "feel" of the people and the places. The book has the quality of providing solid history with daily life vividly described. This is the real personal daily history that I prize.

While the book has special local meaning for people who know south central Wisconsin, it has significance for anyone who wants to gain accurate knowledge of real life in the 1920's. This is valuable contribution to the historical records.

Additionally, persons who enjoy mystery will find this an intriguing real-life story. The book presents a true-life tragic drama on a wedding day: September 27, 1927. I'm ready to re-read Death Beyond the Willows to get better acquainted with the people of the story and to grasp more of the details of real daily life now that I know the "rest of the story."
