House of Spirits and Whispers…

One of my favorite light-hearted non-fiction reads about ghosts is House of Spirits and Whispers: The True Story of a Haunted House by Annie Wilder. I heard this author being interviewed on Jim Harold’s Paranormal Podcast a few years ago. You can find that podcast here

I really truly could not put this book down once I started it. Annie details how she came upon her old Victorian home in Hastings, Minnesota and the spirits she was unaware came with it. She is so detailed, she even includes FLOOR PLANS!
Retiring in an old beautiful Victorian home is something I have always kind of wanted to do. By the end of the book I was so jealous that I didn’t own her house… and I wanted to make a visit! 🙂

 

From the back of the book cover: 

In 1994, Annie Wilder and her children moved into a 100-year-old house in a historic Mississippi River town. Beautiful but spooky, the house had been on the market for six months with no offers. It felt like – and proved to be – a very haunted house.

Essentially the story of a remarkable old Victorian house that seems to be a threshold to the spirit world and the astral realm, “House of Spirits and Whispers” has a backstory of the Wilder family’s relationship with the ghost of the home’s previous owner, an old man named Leon.

Covering a decade’s worth of ghostly activity and supernatural events, from whispering radiators to visits and appearances from all manner of spirits and entities, this unusual story is the true account of Annie Wilder’s experiences living in a haunted house.
