Overview

The fascinating and terrifying exploration into the supernatural that inspired Stephen King's much-anticipated ABC-TV series, Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital.

The newly built Kingdom Hospital in Lewiston, Maine, is one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the country. Unfortunately, it was erected on the site of a terrible tragedy -- a textile mill fire that killed dozens of workers, mostly children. And it appears that beneath the sheen of the new construction and scientific innovations of The Kingdom, an indecipherable and primal evil lurks -- and the soul of a trapped and helpless child cries out for solace.

Eleanor Druse is a career spiritualist who has devoted her time recently to organizing these journals for publication. She lives outside of Lewiston, Maine.

    AN INTRIGUING STORY AND READING

    Those with an interest in or penchant for the paranormal will be riveted to this reading by the author. A career spiritualist, Eleanor Druse, lives in Maine (as does Stephen King whose 'Kingdom Hospital' will be on TV) and spent considerable time organizing the journals she has kept regarding her experiences with Kingdom Hospital. After surviving a near death experience when she visited a friend at that hospital, Druse spends some time at Boston General Hospital suffering from an unknown illness. Upon returning home she hears rumors about strange happenings at Kingdom Hospital and determines that she must investigate. She begins after soliciting the help of her son, Bobby, who is an orderly there. Among her discoveries is the fact that the Hospital is built on the site of a textile mill that was destroyed by fire after the Civil War. This conflagration also took the lives of many workers, child laborers included. Druse becomes convinced that the spirit of one child, Mary Jensen is imprisoned within the Hospital. She also senses that there are other evil spirits lurking among the corridors. 'The Journals of Eleanor Druse' is a 'Kingly' reading sure to chill and intrigue.
