Nestled deep in Litchfield Hills, Connecticut, a 1790 farmhouse sits near the epicenter of a paranormal commotion. The family that resides there regularly encounters its own ancestors and strangers--human and
non-human--who seemingly occupy the same physical space in our world while remaining in their own, parallel worlds. When famous ghost hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren investigated, they dubbed it "Ghost Central."
Here's your chance to unlock and experience the private diary of farmhouse resident Donna Fillie. This amazing record spans five decades and recounts a parade of uncanny occurrences, including:
This compelling work includes many other unexplainable details of a wide variety of phenomena that frequently occur in this otherwise normal area of Connecticut, which may also be the site of a secret military base.
After reading The Haunted House Diaries, you will undoubtedly wonder: Are our assumptions about the paranormal all wrong?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The diary entries become repetitive and boring, not becsuse of the events described, those are sometimes a little scary. It's the comments: "what's happening here...I'm trying to find a pattern"...blah, blah, blah. You report the house being haunted for generations but then wonder what's going on? What are you, dense? I can't believe no one in the family ever talked sbout it. And the author gets the oppotunity to leave but doesn't, buys the damn place, leaves her small children at the mercy of whatever it is. I think either none of it is real or she's s drama queen seeking attention. If it's real she should have stuck to the facts.
I dont know what this book is about but i like haunted house stories. Honestly from the small story summery i think this is going to be a okay book. I also think if youre under the age of 16 you probably dont need to read this. Maybe if your not a scardy cat.
