Overview

When Mark Spencer and his family moved into the beautiful old Allen House in Monticello, Arkansas, they were aware of its notorious reputation for being haunted. According to local lore, the troubled spirit of society belle Ladell Allen, who had mysteriously committed suicide in the master bedroom in 1948, still roamed the grand historic mansion. Yet, Mark remained skeptical—until he and his family began encountering faceless phantoms, a doppelganger spirit, and other paranormal phenomena. Ensuing ghost investigations offered convincing evidence that six spirits, including Ladell, inhabited their home. But the most shocking event occurred the day Mark followed a strange urge to explore the attic and found, crammed under a floorboard, secret love letters that touchingly depict Ladell Allen’s forbidden, heart-searing romance—and shed light on her tragic end.

This haunting true ghost story includes several photographs of the Allen House.

What an exceptional read. I love the fact that Mr. Spencer wrote the book himself about the home he resides in. If I lived closer I would love to tour the Allen house. LaDell's breakdown from the devastating truth of her relationship to P is a reminder why you should never trust someone who is already in a committed relationship. She had so much going for her and I'm happy she was able to free herself of the secrets she kept. I find it ever so interesting that the Spencer's and the Allen's can live together in life and death in harmony.

Awesome read. This book is wonderful. I dont think i could live in the same house as ghosts. I was actually born and raised in monticello arkansas. I dont remember talk of the allen house. If mark and rebecca see ghostly apparations and speak to them, more power to them. I lived in monticello until after my 18th birthday. I now reside in hot springs arkansas.

More like a documentary than a love story. Not worth the $$$$$$.
