One of the better ghost books I've read lately - I enjoyed this quite a bit. I liked that she explains her feelings about what she's going through, as well as what she believes.

I love true-life ghost stories and old houses so when I read a blurb about this one I just had to have it. This book is the author's first book and though it has some typos and a few things were out of order, I found it compelling from beginning to end. The writer has a down to earth, conversational style and a friendly personality that really shines through in her daily dealings with the spirits inhabiting her home. It makes me long for an old home with lots of secrets.

This book was quite good. Some parts made me really creeped out. Not one of the scariest true ghost stories I've read, but it was well written and I enjyoyed it very much!

A down to earth style of writing that is easy to read. The author expresses her thoughts and ideas well. I hope that she continues to look into the lives of the spirits that live there and the interesting stories that may exist.

I really thought this book was GOOD !!! Annie Wilder suspected the funky 100-year-old house was haunted when she saw it for the first time. But nothing could have prepared her for the mischievous and downright scary antics that take place once she, her two children, and her cats move into the rundown Victorian home. Disembodied conversation, pounding walls, glowing orbs, and mysterious whispers soon escalate into full-fledged ghostly visits-provoking sheer terror that, over time, transforms into curiosity. Determined to make peace with her spirit guests, she invites renowned clairvoyant Echo Bodine over and learns fascinating details about each of the entities residing there.
Wilder's gripping tale provides a compelling glimpse into the otherworldly nature of the lonely spirits, protective forces, phantom pets, and departed loved ones that occupy her remarkable home.

This was a really fun book! I really enjoyed the way she described her old home and instead of making it scary, she made it sound interesting and magical!
There were a few parts in the book that made me a little scared but it probably had to do with the fact that it was late at night and I was sleeping alone! This book is not the least bit frightening althogh there are definantly some creepy things going on in her home.

I loved this book. It is wonderful to think that we can all live in peace, no matter what plane we are on. I loved the family and the the "Ghostly" beings. Especially Leon. This family attracted love and found many spirits to watch over their family and home. What a lovely thought. I am wanting to read more from this author now. This book is about spirits, and love and touching lives from far beyond to the here and now, and how a loving family handled their "guests".

This was a well written book about the author's personal experiences in a house she had bought for her family. Her descriptions of the house were well done. She made me want to see this house. The way she explains the events that occured in the house will ring true for anyone who has ever had a brush with the supernatural.
