Overview

A Haunted Love Story is two tales in one: a modern family’s attempt to embrace their strange, spirit-inhabited home and a vintage love affair kept secret for six decades.

When Mark Spencer bought the beautiful old Allen House in Monticello, Arkansas, he knew that it was famously haunted. According to ghost lore, the troubled spirit of Ladell Allen, who mysteriously committed suicide in the master bedroom in 1948, still roamed the historic mansion. Yet Mark remained skeptical—until he and his family began witnessing 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 occured 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.

    What an exceptional read. I love the fact that Mr. Spencer wrote

    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.

    Allen House

    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.
