Roger and Carolyn Perron purchased the home of their dreams and eventual nightmares in December of 1970. The Arnold Estate, located just beyond the village of Harrisville, Rhode Island seemed the idyllic setting in which to raise a family. The couple unwittingly moved their five young daughters into the ancient and mysterious farmhouse. Secrets were kept and then revealed within a space shared by mortal and immortal alike. Time suddenly became irrelevant; fractured by spirits making their presence known then dispersing into the ether. The house is a portal to the past and a passage to the future. This is a sacred story of spiritual enlightenment, told some thirty years hence. The family is now somewhat less reticent to divulge a closely-guarded experience. Their odyssey is chronicled by the eldest sibling and is an unabridged account of a supernatural excursion. Ed and Lorraine Warren investigated this haunting in a futile attempt to intervene on their behalf. They consider the Perron family saga to be one of the most compelling and significant of a famously ghost-storied career as paranormal researchers. During a séance gone horribly wrong, they unleashed an unholy hostess; the spirit called Bathsheba…a God-forsaken soul. Perceiving herself to be mistress of the house, she did not appreciate the competition. Carolyn had long been under siege; overt threats issued in the form of fire…a mothers greatest fear. It transformed the woman in unimaginable ways. After nearly a decade the family left a once beloved home behind though it will never leave them, as each remains haunted by a memory. This tale is an inspiring testament to the resilience of the human spirit on a pathway of discovery: an eternal journey for the living and the dead

Compelling but Confusing
January 3rd, 2015
This book is worth the read for the story alone since it's written more from the children's perspectives. Keep in mind that the author's style of writing is extremely descriptive which can sometimes fog the actual account. Also, the author tends to time warp back and forth quite a bit so you really need to concentrate on what's happening.

Difficult read as the writer is very philosophical and often refers to events she never explains are describes The Warrens involvement. Andrea refers to a seance but she never actually tells the reader what actually happened but refers to it as though the reader is aware of all the details..most off there time the reader feels ' out of the story' not really understanding what the writer is talking about. It is a very confusing way to write. Clearly Andrea knows what she is talking about, but her readers do not know the story
