I really enjoyed this book. It was unnerving at times the way the ghosts popped up and I have to say I wouldn't
have been so brave as they were. I can relate to some of the experiences because I also lived in a haunted house
and dealt with the crashing glass sounds, footfalls etc. I think one thing that makes the book so different is there have been so many apparition sightings there. That's unusual. This book is well written and Mrs. Back did a good job descibing the episodes that transpired. I also would have enjoyed seeing what the house actually looked like. I don't think the one on the cover is it. It's good to read a great story after so many duds. Great Job!

Believable and well-written account of this 25+ year haunting. Some very scary and spine-tingling moments that I'm sure were fascinating to witness but doubt many of us would want to be the ones to do so! I admire this family for their tenacity to endure this for so many years rather than fleeing and for researching to find the answers to the many mysteries surrounding their home. The only thing lacking were pictures - I would have loved to have seen some of the actual rooms, etc. The author states they conduct site tours at Halloween, but unfortunately I don't live close!

This is such a fantastic paranormal read. For me, this is what a paranormal book should be. The family told of the ghosts, and how they effect their lives. Sometimes, it was pranks, and other times it was pretty spooky.

For me, what makes this such a great read is that the author didn't stretch the truth. She didn't say the house had demons, hooded figures, demon dogs, hell house, blood flowing from the walls. Nothing like that. She just told the facts on what went on in the house.

What I liked is that the ghosts had their own personalities. Mr. McBride, was good natured for the most part, but he didn't mind making things a bit scary, he had a strong personality. The woman ghost had a warm side to her, and made sure that the baby (the human one, not the a ghost one) was warm at night. That part was very interesting to read. The kid ghosts, acted like children do and played with the human children toys. I had to laugh at how Mr. McBride treated the author's mom. You know he got a kick out of it.

I can't say enough great things about this book. Was all of it scary? Nope, not even close. That being said, it didn't need to be all that scary to make it a good read.

I highly suggest this book for this time of the year. Great read and it did give me some goosebumps, but not to many. :O)

A quick, easy read. It's fun, but not particularly original or convincing. It's sort of like sitting next to a stranger on a plane, who is telling you about her haunted house. Interesting, but hard to say if she's telling the truth, exaggerating, or just plain nuts.

The book is competently written, but seems a little disjointed and disorganized. After a particularly scary event, you're left wondering, "Did they try find out if there might be a logical reason? Did they consider moving out? How could they leave their kids alone in the house when they were so scared?" But the book just skips to the next event. Also, it's hard to tell how old the kids are sometimes, especially since they speak like adults, even when they're toddlers...at least as Ms. Back recounts it. (I was curious, since some of the events may have been the kids playing pranks...if they were old enough. There's also the theory that poltergeist activity is linked to adolescents, so it would have been helpful to know the age of the kids.)

Not my favorite true ghost story, but you could do worse.

I really enjoyed this book. It is well written and because of that the story came alive for me. The author gives you a bit of background information, throughout the story, not only about the house and the spirits, but themselves. At times I would laugh out loud to some of the crazy and hilarious goings on and sad at times which made me tear up. Each spirit has a distinct personality and a love for life and those still enjoying it. It is amazing how far a spirit will go to get your attention!

Format: Paperback
The level of writing in this book is very simple, almost as if it was written as a YA book. It's also lacking in any kind of suspense. Each chapter is a copy of the last, with a slightly different paranormal occurrence recounted. The author sets up a scene, describes something weird that happened, then ends the chapter with a metaphorical shoulder shrug. I get no sense of how the ghosts really affected the people living in the house, beyond a temporary scare. It's not until the very last pages that the author brings up the idea of finding solutions, and as quickly shrugs her shoulders as if it's no big deal. If I had child ghosts living with me, I would do what I could to help them move on. How awful to let the Victorian woman remain tortured looking for her own lost child.

Sadly, this book lacks is any photos showing the house itself or any of the unusual occurrences -- what a wasted opportunity.

(This has nothing to do with the book's quality, but I really had to laugh at the pompous names the author gave her children: Froston and D'Everaux. I mean, really.)
