Publisher's Summary

There's something wrong with Ashburn House....

The ancient building has been the subject of rumours for close to a century. Its owner, Edith, refused to let guests inside and rarely visited the nearby town. Following Edith's death, her sole surviving relative, Adrienne, inherits the property. Adrienne's only possessions are a suitcase of luggage, 20 dollars, and her pet cat. Ashburn House is a lifeline she can't afford to refuse.

Adrienne doesn't believe in ghosts, but it's hard to ignore the unease that grows as she explores her new home. Strange messages have been etched into the wallpaper, an old grave is hidden in the forest behind the house, and eerie portraits in the upstairs hall seem to watch her every movement.

As she uncovers more of the house's secrets, Adrienne begins to believe the whispered rumours about Ashburn may hold more truth than she ever suspected. The building has a bleak and grisly past, and as she chases the threads of a decades-old mystery, Adrienne realises she's become the prey to something deeply unnatural and intensely resentful.

Only one thing is certain: Ashburn's dead are not at rest.

    Story
    "One of my top listens!"
    Would you listen to The Haunting of Ashburn House again? Why?

    Absolutely! I feel as if this is the kind of book you can listen to again and again, so much detail that doesn't bog the book down will find its way out with every listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adrienne, i find myself in her. Its so nice to find a ghost story without a level of romance. I love the passion of this girl and how she take courageous steps in her life!


    Which character – as performed by Eva Kaminsky – was your favorite?

    Adrienne, You almost forget its a book!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! i found myself doing thing that made it possible for my to have my headphones in!


    Any additional comments?

    I am about to go see if this author has more books like this! Fingers crossed!

    Story
    "One of the most frightening books I've read"

    Do not read this book if it's windy outside, and if you live close to a forest or wooded area. Read only in day light hours.

    I have read or listened to many stories about haunted houses and such, but this story exceeded my expectation of a ghost story.

    Very well written, I enjoyed this book immensely. Keep up the good work Darcy Coates, and the narrator Eva Kaminsky was excellent.

    "Cool back story - worth the wait"

    A bit slow to start, but atmospheric and creepy. I loved the back story and wanted more. Great end!

    Story
    "Loved the narrator, but the story was frustrating."
    Any additional comments?

    The story left me with many questions around the main character. What happened to her family, why did she not have ANY friends and how could she have moved to such a remote place by herself without researching it? I did enjoy the amount of information that was given and how it was given to the main character near the end.
    Plus, I just love a creepy old house. This author always does a great job of describing these settings.

    "Disappointed"

    Story
    "not what I expected"

    warning: spoilers

    there were parts of this book that were completely unexpected... but I guessed the evil twin thing right off. parts of this story were bone chilling, and some were... well... dumb. particularly the protagonists reaction to Eleanor. it was less "omg I need to get out of here right now! " and more "hmm... a corpse just tried to eat me. guess I better protect my cat" which I found silly. but the ending was satisfying and the narrator was good. I liked the book but will probably not listen to it again. I will probably read more by this author as some of it was truly scary.

    "Glad I stick it out"

    There is so much more to this story that only comes out in the end. I wish more of the back story was interwoven into the tale. Missed opportunity on the part of the writer in my myopic opinion.
