Roger and Carolyn Perron purchased the home of their dreams and eventual nightmares in December of 1970. The Arnold Estate, located just beyond the village of Harrisville, Rhode Island seemed the idyllic setting in which to raise a family. The couple unwittingly moved their five young daughters into the ancient and mysterious farmhouse. Secrets were kept and then revealed within a space shared by mortal and immortal alike. Time suddenly became irrelevant; fractured by spirits making their presence known then dispersing into the ether. The house is a portal to the past and a passage to the future. This is a sacred story of spiritual enlightenment, told some thirty years hence. The family is now somewhat less reticent to divulge a closely-guarded experience. Their odyssey is chronicled by the eldest sibling and is an unabridged account of a supernatural excursion. Ed and Lorraine Warren investigated this haunting in a futile attempt to intervene on their behalf. They consider the Perron family saga to be one of the most compelling and significant of a famously ghost-storied career as paranormal researchers. During a sťance gone horribly wrong, they unleashed an unholy hostess; the spirit called Bathsheba...a God-forsaken soul. Perceiving herself to be mistress of the house, she did not appreciate the competition. Carolyn had long been under siege; overt threats issued in the form of fire...a mother’s greatest fear. It transformed the woman in unimaginable ways. After nearly a decade the family left a once beloved home behind though it will never leave them, as each remains haunted by a memory. This tale is an inspiring testament to the resilience of the human spirit on a pathway of discovery: an eternal journey for the living and the dead.

I chose to review this book in preparation for my attendance at the movie opening. The excerpt was very wordy and slow moving. I was motivated to continue merely in the hope of getting to the parts that I had prior knowledge of. Unfortunately, I feel that the selection proved to be much ado about nothing and may decide not to purchase in response to this preview.

Curiosity nothing more
I have finished the book and to tell you the truth... for starters what mother in their right mind with her housband and 5 children stay in a house that is so horrible to
live in... and for 10 years!!! Has to be crazy no sain rational thought involved sadly... I for one would of found the most suitable place to live and move out as fast as possible, anyway I cannot say 100% that the story is true or not, however I can say for me I believe in ghosts as i have seen a few of them however none did any thing or Said anything to me :-)
