About the Author

Andrea Perron was born in Rhode Island in 1958. She is a graduate of Chatham College in Pittsburgh, Pa. having earned an interdisciplinary degree in philosophy and English literature. This memoir waited thirty years to be told, allowing the time and distance necessary for her family to reveal these long held secrets. The author is currently preparing for release of the third volume in this remarkable trilogy. John Shaw created the cover portrait of their farmhouse as a parting gift. Two months after the Perron family abandoned this place in the country, John, all of nineteen years old, drove from Rhode Island to Georgia. He presented his friends with the watercolor; painted from memory, in memory of a special house which touched his life as well. It remains a treasured keepsake. They loved him then as they love him now.

You cannot read Volume Two without reading Volume One, as many gripes as you may have about it. Andrea Perron is NOT a bad writer. She's brilliant. She just needs an editor, that's all. So, most importantly, what she has set us up with, in Volume One (in spite of its repetition) becomes gloriously alive in Volume Two. Here, the Warren's are finally introduced - and while they had tried so much to help the Perron family, what eventually transpired will frighten you to your soul. It will scare you so badly enough as to induce nightmares. Please, don't misunderstand me. Ed and Lorraine are very good people. Lorraine remains one of the most beautiful human beings I've ever encountered. But, WOW! I blame most of this on the anti-hero, Roger Perron, whom I'd like to smack upside up the head, as hard as I can for his truly ignorant belief system. However - this is all dealt with, very clearly, and cleanly in the second volume. This story NEEDS to be told and Andrea, indeed, "tells it like it is" (was). I love this family and I care for each and every one of them. If a book can get me to this level of empathy, that is really saying something! A must read for anyone who cares about the Perron's. What this family went through is historical, positively historical. Andrea Perron has written a fine follow up volume. Now. WHEN will we see Volume Three??

While I love the story & theme, I still have mixed emotions about this book. I enjoyed book 1 but found it extremely repetitive, and book 2 vastly improved upon that even though parts of it were still somewhat repetitive. I found the format and flow much improved in the 2nd book which was my main complaint in the 1st book. The 2nd book still jumped around in time here & there but it didn't seem to interrupt the storyline like it did in book 1. The first book is a must read before jumping into the second as it gives all of the background info needed to enjoy this book. I find the author highly intelligent and tended to use "large words" or words not commonly used, but I get the impression that she does speak like this in her daily life so it works for her & the books that she writes. If someone else tried to use these words it would come across as irritating & self righteous, but not Andrea. Another downside that I found was that many thoughts were dragged out as a way of expressing how important they were or how someone felt. I honestly feel the book would be better if some of that material was eliminated. For example, the last few chapters are used to wrap up the story as they should, but do we really need an entire chapter to recap the strong faith this family has when it is discussed throughout the entire book. That is just repetitive. I honestly think book 1 & 2 would be much better if they were consolidated into one book after eliminating the repetitive & unnecessary passages. The end of the book shows a lot of closure for the family in a coming to terms sort of way. I can't image what is left to write about in the 3rd book other than tying up a few loose ends. As much as I found at fault with this book, I still enjoyed it. It was a great improvement on the 1st, and I look forward to seeing the movie (The Conjuring) based on this family's experience. I will also read the next book to finish the trilogy as I do not start anything without finishing it.

This book could've been condensed to a couple hundred pages. The order was awful. There's no way to understand what happened in what order -- when was Carolyn sick with pneumonia? Before or after the Warrens visited?

I literally skipped pages of deep analysis and ponderings from the author over what each incident meant... I feel the reader can do much of that for him/herself. Oh, and the word "Boo!" was ENTIRELY overused.

I was also a little disappointed in the family's blaming of the Warrens for the increase in activity in their home. Roger didn't even allow the Warrens to finish their work in expelling the spirit before he kicked them out. The process was not allowed to be completed. The demon remained and then the family complained of increased activity. No wonder! All they did was anger the spirit.

This book was so disorganized. I had to skip through a lot because there was just so much there that was distracting. I had wanted to read a story of the haunting, instead I was really disappointed with it. I did finish it because I had hoped the author would get to the point. I didn't like the remarks about the Warrens. It seemed the family never really let them try to help. After reading the book I really have no idea what really happened. Wish I had not wasted my time with this one.

This book is one of the most boring reads of my life. There is no logical flow to the events described, it is incredibly wordy and not in a way that adds to the descriptions but actually takes away from them, way too philosophical, and incredibly irritating to read due to the over use of SAT level vocabulary and randomly capitalized words. If you are curious about the supernatural encounters this family experienced don't bother wasting your money on this book because the number of encounters written about are minimal compared to the number of pages you have to endure reading before you get to them.

there is a good story but you need the patience of job to endure the book! every paragraph has three ways saying the same thing. it's very annoying. why is this book published? everything could have been put in one book if the book wasn't so long winded. I've now struggled thru 2 books not going for a third.
