Overview

House of Spirits & Whispers: The True Story of a Haunted House by Annie Wilder


We had been instructed to enter by the back door. That's the part of the house where the old man had lived. It was where he still lived. Turns out he was watching us that day too, silent and heavy as the air, bound to the earth and his former home.

In 1994, Annie Wilder and her children moved into a 100-year-old house in a historic Mississippi River town. Beautiful but spooky, the house had been on the market for six months with no offers. It felt like-and proved to be-a very haunted house.

Essentially the story of a remarkable old Victorian house that seems to be a threshold to the spirit world and the astral realm, House of Spirits and Whispers has a backstory of the Wilder family's relationship with the ghost of the home's previous owner, an old man named Leon.

Covering a decade's worth of ghostly activity and supernatural events, from whispering radiators to visits and appearances from all manner of spirits and entities, this unusual story is the true account of Annie Wilder's experiences living in a haunted house.

I read it after meeting the author. I visited the house and read it again. Such an amazing book. It is all true. It is a very peaceful book, not your typical 'haunted house' book. You can't help but think about it and share it with your friends. Definately a book to get your own copy of and read and re-read. My friends have told their friends and so on. It truly makes an impression on everyone. It is very well written, as if the thoughts are my own. I can't wait for her next book!

I have always been interested in the paranormal especially nonfiction which is what drew me to this book. It definitely is not an edge of your seat, sleep with the lights on type story and I appreciated that about this book. This seemed to be a no embellishment just the facts ghost story I would give it a 3.75, the only really thing that turned me off a bit was how the author did a sort of a flash back late in the book almost like it was a part that she forgot to put in earlier. All in all a good book.

This book is not as scary as the cover implies. I have read better ghost stories. One questions the intelligence of the author more than once, as this story drags on and on. Don't waste your money on this one.
