Publisher's Summary

When Catherine Porter murders her only son and takes her own life, no one can understand why. Vilified for her crimes, she becomes synonymous with everything evil and wicked amongst the locals, and parents begin using her name to scare their errant children into behaving.

Soon after her death, reports begin to circulate that her ghost has been seen inside her old house. Over the years, the sightings continue, sending most of the house's occupants running from the property, screaming into the night, never to return.

When the Jefferson family moves in, they decide to hold a séance to finally rid the property of its unwanted guest. But in doing so, they unleash something even more terrifying: a malevolent force that will stop at nothing to take back its domain.

Didn't See That Coming

I was disappointed that a book set in England wasn't read by a British narrator, but the overall story was well done and what a twist!!

A bit dull, Basically the ghost was a nuisance

Not much drama or conflict. Had potential, but basically it came down to the ghost being an inconvenience.

struggled Need's new narrator

I think it would be a better book if they changed the narrator. She was so hard to listen to. Very little influction in her voice and it got confusing as to whom was talking. It was like trying to swallow a dry pill.

meh

This was a fairly decent book to listen to, but I don't know why an American was narrating a clearly English novel.
it was a bit too long also it dragged out but it had a really good twist at the end.

Really slow and not very scary.

The narrative was very slow and there was not much suspense. The characters were well developed...at least the living ones were...

The Old Porter House

William was an Attorney an owned his own frim in England. He and his Wife had two young girls which they adored. Things with his firm had fallen on hard times and rather than tell Cecilia his Wife, of his companies situation, or standing by while he knew sooner or later they would be evicted if his firm failed, he decided to shop for a more reasonable new home. They could relocate, and he would re-establish a new practice. He assured Celia that her and the girls would loved the change and adapt well to the move.

Going back in time, William Jefferson found and an old two story two story house built for the Porter family, in mid nineteenth century.

When all had pasted of the original Porter family, Richard Wentworth bought it at an Estate Sale, by the survivors. He Renovated it and sold it for a huge profit. It had a dark past and had stayed on the market for quiet sometime. It had been used as a hospital for WWI & WWII solders, a home for misguided or abandon girls and he even tried renting rooms out, but no one seemed to stay for long because of it.

Even though William was informed of it's dark past, he could not turn down such a great deal. His cost was almost half of what he was paying now to rent in England, so he closed the deal, not first discussing it with Celia. William insisted the Realtor not reveal its past history to his Wife.

Sometimes people that think they can purchase a Mansion for a Starter Home price, do not always have live in peace.

I think Mark L'Strange did an excellent job in the writing of this story. It kept my intrest from beginning to end. Each time I thought the end was near something changed to the plot. I found it quiet amusing. I believe it is not appropriate reading or listening as I did for the very young.

The Narrator, Heidi Bellhamer did an outstanding job with changing her voice to meet each character and I commend her for a job well done. I will add her to my list of favorite Narrator's.

Really good story

I really enjoyed this book! It would have been even better if a person with a British accent had narrated it though. The narrator was fine but whenever she used British slang it sounded wrong. I wish I had read it instead of listened to it.

Best I've heard in SO long!

I listen to a good deal of audiobooks and no story has kept me glued from page one. A wonderful balance of everything. Not too much violence or unneeded gore, a great explanation of necessary details, great characters, a nice chill!

Although the story took place in England, the narrator did not perform with a heavy accent, which was much appreciated. I enjoy understanding what I'm listening to. Helped the story along nicely.

Story was great, narrator not so much

The story was really good, but the narrator was awful. She would randomly throw in a really bad English accent here and there, and then the rest of the book was in her normal accent. Stick with one or the other. It is set in England, so get someone with an actual British accent, or someone who can at least fake one well.

Brilliant ghost story

Absolutely loved the story, it flowed really well, few things I would of like to the answers too, the main character wanted those answers too, but not essential to the story to know, What happened to the other medium ? also not sure why her body size was such a issue.
Absolutely LOVED the ending amazing actually,.
the only thing I would mark down was the narrator she did a good job but don't think the voices suited the characters but wasn't annoying also being set in England with English characters it bugged me that some words were mispronounced as she was American.
