In my recent convalescence I finally got to read a book a friend let me borrow called The Myrtles Plantation: The True Story of America's Most Haunted House. Now with having my website and doing tons of research for it I have come across this Plantation before, unfortunately I have never been to it. I would love to spend the weekend. I had read it was one of the or if not the most haunted house in the US, but I have to wonder… don’t they all say that about their houses? Actually, I could say that about the house I live in as well. Apparently there was a flood on our land somewhere around the turn of the century and many people and animals died. So, it really doesn’t have to be the house, it is the land as well.
When I started the book I was really into it and I loved that it started out spooky. As I went along I liked it even more but towards the end it was leaving a funny taste in my mouth. Now don’t get me wrong… I for one know places can be haunted and I believe the Myrtles is but at the end it was really starting to read like a novel more than an account of a haunting. I had a hard time believing that some of the parts just fit in the end like they did, and how the women did not know what was going on around her, ghostly happening or otherwise. And it didn't hurt that one of the owners had my last name but they only owned it for a yr, big sisy.
I will not go into any other detail other than that because it is a very good read and I think if you like spooky true to life stuff, you will enjoy this book. I was so engulfed in it that I read it in 3 days…on pain killers no less. Dang kidney infection!! Lol
If you have already read this book give me your opinion about the end of it. I would love to hear what others thought of it.
