Overview

You'll find tales of things that live in shadows and only come when they're called... the trouble is, you don't always know when you've called them.
* A Grandfather, dead of a heart attack in his field, those spirit appeared to say his goodbyes to his family and assure them that all was well...
* The haunted library, where one can distinctly hear the sound of soft bare feet on the wooden floor and the slow scrape of a book being removed from the bookcase...
* A departed old hog named Bramble Brew, fierce in life, more fierce in death. If you approach her favorite tree, you're likely to hear a high squeal...
* The spirit of a dead man, rich while alive, who's come back to claim his prized possession - a golden arm...
* An old root cellar that Granny swears is nothing to be afraid of; she says the smell is from the earth walls, and that's it's just the moist air trapped in a small space. But dead things are in the dark...
You'll find all these spirits, and more, in Haunted Homeplace!

This is an excellent book. If you pick it up you will want to finish it. Exciting stories that are oh so entertaining. Buy one for a Christmas present.

This book arrived the day before Halloween and I read it all in one night. So many great Southern stories. I've always loved legends and these are the best kind - old stories with a modern twist. The retelling of "Golden Arm" was really interesting and I used half a box of Kleenex after reading "Strays" and "Roses from Thorns." Don't worry! There are plenty of funny stories too. "Fortunate" and "More than Molasses" both made me smile. I just hope there are more Prosper Vance short stories in the future. They really remind me of Manly Wade Wellman, but without the hokum.

Every story is interesting and has its own little twist. The characters are well-developed and believable, and the stories draw the reader into a dark and stormy world filled with magnolias and ghosts.  If you enjoy quirky, interesting characters, ghost stories and legends with dark and sometimes humorous twists, then give this book a read. You won't be disappointed.

I picked up this book on the recommendation of a friend and I really liked it. I've always loved short stories and there were more than 20 to choose from. Even though some of the stories were dark, there are also many that are very humorous. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good story and especially anyone who likes Southern legends, ghost stories, or stories about the supernatural.
