You will love this book if you are interested in spiritualism- contacting ghosts, seances etc - and you will love it even more if you are interested in Victorian spiritualism.
This book tells the true life story of two sisters, Kate and Maggie Fox, who as teenagers claimed they could contact spirits. Their story brought them fame, notoriety and even caused them depression later on in life.
I actually read this book because I am fascinated by spirits, but I found myself really captivated by the stories of these two sisters, of their life back in the 1800s and the sad things that happened to them.
This book is amazing, the author keeps it ineresting and well paced. It does have some eerie accounts of when they contacted spirits, but also some heart-breaking moments where these two young women went through some tough times.
I can't even begin to get across how great this book is. You can't go wrong. Read it, you won't be disappointed.

This book is highly enjoyable and well written. Anyone who is fascinated by Victorian Spiritualism in the US, UK or indeed worldwide should find this book extremely interesting. The author doesn't obsess about whether the girls were genuine mediums or not and lets their story unfold naturally, which makes the reader feel a part of the whole process.
A compelling read, highly recommended.

I bet people who read this book haven't read the bible. The Bible is on amazon if you want real supernatural. Why are people so scared of it! The occult is a terrifying ordeal the deep you delve into it's depth! It's not a game it's not fun. The movies that are designed to horror scare are that way for a reason. The basis of the occult will manifest supernatural powers of spirit entities. Did you know Jesus Christ talked more about Hell than he did Heaven in the Bible?
The bible gives very clear indication what God thinks of mediumship. Anyone involved in spiritualism will soon find out that there truly is life after death! But then as it says in the king James bible test all spirits, to do that you have to be in relationship with God. What would happen if a Christian in the Holy Spirit confronted a medium the bible does give an example.
Did you know that it says repeatedly in the bible that when Jesus comes back it will be as he left, on a cloud out of the sky & will land on holy soil in Jerusalem only! Any false prophet who claims to be the Christ obviously are not because they have to be seen by all doing this returning miracle. That's one way to know the returning Christ. Plus the rock at Jerusalem must split also as when he was originally crucified!
A very big Bible Warning- Let not angels contradict/ change the bible `word' i.e. say a different gospel new book see Christ's-Apostle Curse - Bible Galatians1:8
Bible Warning -"..& every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not of God: This is the spirit of the antichrist."see Bible - 1 John4:3 & Rev.13:1-18.
Bible Warning-"Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists(spiritualism), for you will be defiled by them.I am the LORD your God"Leviticus19:31.
Bible Warning - "Let no one be found among you..., who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells,
or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead(Dammed). Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD." - see Deuteronomy 18:10-12
DECEIT Bible Warning- "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."- see 1 John 4:1 +
Satan a Dragon Serpent murderer John 8:44 Revelation12:7-9 Job 41.
Bible Warning -"But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light."2 Corinthians 11:14
Angel books advocating Ouija/ tarot / mediumship violate God's`Life Manifesto'Bible.
If you like supernatural read these books on amazon for your delight where the real power & love is found!
