Haunted: The Incredible True Story of a Canadian Family's Experience Living in a Haunted Houseby Dorah L. Williams
It was an irrational decision. Despite having just moved into a beautiful new house, the Williams family gave in to an odd, overwhelming desire to purchase and move into a Victorian home they had come upon by chance. They were curious, of course, as to why the house had, in the past, had such a high vacancy rate - no one ever seemed to live in it for a long period
It was an irrational decision. Despite having just moved into a beautiful new house, the Williams family gave in to an odd, overwhelming desire to purchase and move into a Victorian home they had come upon by chance. They were curious, of course, as to why the house had, in the past, had such a high vacancy rate - no one ever seemed to live in it for a long period of time. But that curiosity didn’t last long, because shortly after moving in, strange things began to happen. It became abundantly clear that the home’s past owners had all had a reason for leaving: fear. The Williams’ new home was haunted. At first, the family tried telling themselves there were logical explanations for the strange things they all were witnessing. But before long they came to accept the fact that they were sharing their home with ghosts.
Haunted is the Williams family’s story from the point of view of the mother, Dorah. Through her chilling reminiscences, we witness the all-too-real goings-on in the house. And we join the family as they seek a way to bring an end to the paranormal events that were occurring with ever more frequency and intensity, and learn why the events began in the first place.
She's no Stephen King. And she's no John Robert Colombo (author of a series of books about haunted Ontario). Yet this chilling memoir by Dorah Williams, an ordinary housewife and mother of three, still manages to scare the socks off you, possibly because the writing in Haunted is so simple, straightforward, and devoid of unnecessary analysis.

This was a good book and easy read. It was ghostly and hauntings but not to the standard of scares and creeps I have gotten from other books. Overall, worth the read.
I can't add much more than the positive reviews that have been written above. I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the author's other books.
A very good haunting story....its told in a very believable manner...I was hooked in from page 1 t the end...don't want to give any details because its such a great read. Looking forward to reading Haunted Too, Dorah L. Williams second book on hauntings from people who reached out to her.
Held my interest from first to last page. Good people coping with a big problem in a believable way.
A good haunted story that is easy to believe. Doesn't turn into a horror story, chilling yes but believable
