I love a good ghost story. I don't know why, but I do. I had not read anything by this author previously, so I was excited to do so. In this book the author and her brother tour the areas covered in the book. It seemed to be that most of the sightings/hauntings happened around heavy Civil War areas around Virginia. Not an uncommon thing. I remember doing a ghost tour in Gettysburg, PA and there was so much activity. One of the things that I liked is the recomendations that the author made through out the book. She gives hours of operation of various places. I enjoyed this book I received a copy of this book through Silver Dagger blogging program. All thoughts are my own.
