Editorial reviews

Dorah Williams’ real-life ghost story begins like so many others: A young family moves into a historic mansion, its untold history and baroque trappings portending supernatural secrets. Nevertheless, this is no fiction, nor is it cliché: The Williams matriarch’s memoirs aren’t so much terrifying as bewildering, vaguely eerie. At times Williams’ ghosts are playful, almost childlike, and they don’t necessarily forebode a horrific ending for the house’s inhabitants. An uncanny experience nonetheless, Haunted receives a suitably spooky send-up from established documentarian Katina Kalin, who captures the warmth, wonderment, and worry of this vigilant mother. Kalin cuts through whatever incredulity might belie Haunted, and lends authenticity - even a sense of familiarity - to the Williams family’s plight, so that listeners will empathize with their paranormal predicament.

Publisher's summary

It was an irrational decision. Despite having just moved into a beautiful new house, the Williams family gave in to an odd, overwhelming desire to purchase and move into a Victorian home they had come upon by chance. They were curious, of course, as to why the house had, in the past, such a high vacancy rate - no one ever seemed to live in it for a long period of time. But that curiosity didn't last long, because shortly after moving in, strange things began to happen. It became abundantly clear that the home's past owners all had a reason for leaving: fear. The Williams' new home was haunted. At first, the family tried telling themselves there were logical explanations for the strange things they all were witnessing. But before long they came to accept the fact that they were sharing their home with ghosts. Haunted is the Williams family's story from the point of view of the mother, Dorah. Through her chilling reminiscences, we witness the all-too-real goings-on in the house. And we join the family as they seek a way to bring an end to the paranormal events that were occurring with ever more frequency and intensity, and learn why the events began in the first place.

Wonderful account of a haunting!

Wonderfully told story of a haunting. It made me feel compassion towards these benign spirits. It also clarified that a haunting could be occurring to help us understand a spirits sadness or feelings.
