Over the years I have read enough ghost books to fill a small library, most of which are the familiar collections of several stories written by one author. Many of these writers are old pros and have a very polished writing style; sometimes a little too polished and detached in fact. Elaine Mercado is a new writer and sometimes it shows, but her candor and vulnerability is a refreshing change for the fans of this type of book. It is also nice to hear the story from the point of view of the person who experienced the haunting rather than a third party interviewer.
The story begins as the author and her husband purchase a new home and move in. Almost from the outset the family begins to feel as if they are being watched and things escalate from there. All of the family is effected but the author and her eldest daughter seem to get the brunt of the storm. A storm that only intensifies as time goes on. To add to the problem, this is a family that does not particularly believe in any form of life after death and so they must also deal with what is happening in relation to their beliefs. After finally coming to terms with this conundrum they begin to seek help and find it in the form of famous Parapsychologist Hans Holzer. Dr. Holzer is very familiar to anyone who is partial to this type of book and I have several of his books in my own library. In many ways this is like one of Dr. Holzer's books except with a much more detailed description of the haunting before Holzer arrives on the scene. This is a ghost story that portrays in detail the haunting much more so than the investigation. I like it!
This is a book that you will read very quickly because the author does a very nice job of making you wonder what is going to happen next.

Elaine says at the end of this book that she is unsure of certain things - which i will not give away - and i must say, it`s very difficult to believe the way this story `ends.` Elaine`s `caring` brother took an absolute age finding someone to help rid the house of `spirits` and i couldn`t help wondering what his problem was. Then he turns round and says he actually PERSONALLY KNOWS a medium who can help ! So what has he been waiting all these months for ? .....you ask yourself !
A lot of strange things going on in this book - apart from the ghostly happenings - elaine never misses a chance to have a dig at her ex husband, which i thought was hilarious every time she did it !
For me this story felt unfinished - and elaine kind of says the same thing at the end.

Really good book very gripping and from the heart also believable! I enjoyed it very much. 'Haunted' about the Candian family is nothing to this book.

This is something that you can not buy in any shop as it is an American import, but thanks to Amazon, I am able to read it. I ordered it on the Saturday and it arrived on Tuesday. Great service. The book is just what you want from a ghost story and the best thing is, that it is all true. Just do not read it too close to lights out.

I,m not normally easily spooked as I love all things supernatural but this book really disturbed me at bed time and I was glad to see the dawn. It,s so well written that you speed along absorbing all the strange happenings and frequently glancing around and jumping at the slightest noise. It seems more believable as Elaine constantly queries events and seems genuinely puzzled by the different hauntings. Anyone who has experienced ghostly disturbances as I have will have some insight into the fear these bring.recommended.

I enjoyed this book because simply it was very well written. It was delivered in such a way that it was believable and the author was an intelligent, amusing woman. For somebody who is a nurse first and a writer second, she does an excellent job. Supernatural genres (books and DVDs) tend to have such an extensive range of quality these days; some are truly awful right up to truly brilliant but it's very much a case of taking 'pot luck' seems there is no publishable standard these days, but I'm pleased to say, this is definitely one of the readable ones. The only part where it drags somewhat is the length of time involved to summon help (procrastinates somewhat).

Like a previous reviewer I too have a library of this type of book, and I would also highly recommend this one. It's a heartfelt story of the experiences of one family and how living in a haunted home affected them. The haunting escalates from globes of light to violent attacks on the family. Very well written and keeps the reader engaged from the beginning to the all too soon end. If you enjoy this one, you'll probably enjoy The Myrtles too. Well worth a read.
