Louisiana is one of the most captivating and visually stunning states in the South, with a long and fascinating history that has meshed cultures, religions, and races. Due to its storied past and unique blend of inhabitants, Louisiana is also known as one of the most haunted states in America.
Within Louisiana there is a plethora of historic landmarks, each having their own story of times gone by. Many of these locations, beautiful as they may be, are riddled with mysterious stories of ghosts and paranormal activity.
New Orleans, the largest city in the state, has a long history of devastation and disaster. There are many alleged ghosts and ghouls that reside in this beautiful and eclectic southern city. Many of them had their lives tragically cut short, taken before their time and have not yet 'crossed over' to the other side. Legend has it that these spirits often stroll along the streets, haunt the hotels, lurk in the swamps and live among us in a state of restless confusion, effectively trapped between two worlds.
Join ghost hunter Sarah Ashley, as she shares with you some of the most chilling ghost stories and tales of paranormal activity from the State of Louisiana. She will take you to some of the most haunted houses in the French Quarter to some of the most haunted Louisiana plantations.

I found the subject interesting enough to finish the book. However, Ms Ashley either needs to take an English writing course or hire an editor. Objects and locations are reported to perform amazing actions: not because they are haunted, but because the writer does not grasp the rules of grammar. We are told that the ancestors of the original owners inhabit one home now, not as ghosts but as living persons-in other words they are really the DEscendants of those venerable ANcestors.
The reader is pretty good, although I was rather ruefully amused by her during the story of a plantation owned by a French American family. She pronounces the names with the usual American pronunciations, which didn't bother me. But then, she tells us of a portrait of one of the ladies which was painted by John "Sarjon", meaning John Singer Sargent a famous BRITISH painter. Why she wanted to sound French for this one not French name is anyone's guess.
In case you do not think grammar is important, dear readers, please understand that when it is not used correctly, the meaning of a statement can often becomes confused or even lost in the mess.The reader or listener must then try to figure out what they are being told and may go away with the wrong meaning.
Bless your little ol' hearts!😉
Nothing but hearsay typical ghost stories we've all heard a million times did not hold my attention very disappointing avoid like the plague 💤💤💤👎👎
