Availability: Ready to download

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 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 seance gone horribly wrong, they unleashed an unholy hostess; the spirit called Bathsheba...a God-forsaken soul. Perceiving herself to be the 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 mother's 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.

    Good writing is something to be cherished. Editors and publishers contribute to the books they put on the market, while self-published books reveal the inexperience of an author. I wish Andrea Perron well in her writing career. She has a way of endearing herself to readers, despite the flaws of her prose. This is an interesting story, but it really is far too long. When, after 1,200 pages an author says “indulge me” a reader’s heart might sink. Still, there are bits and pieces here and there tha Good writing is something to be cherished.

She has a way of endearing herself to readers, despite the flaws of her prose. This is an interesting story, but it really is far too long. When, after 1,200 pages an author says “indulge me” a reader’s heart might sink. Still, there are bits and pieces here and there that keep the reader going. As I learned long ago, it is best not to give indications that you’re winding up the story until you really are doing so. While these books aren’t chronological in any kind of strict way, this one is mostly about leaving the haunted house. There’s a lot of dirty laundry hung out on this line—broken families have skeletons as well as ghosts, it seems. It may be cathartic to write it, but what will the reader think? I suspect most of us simply wanted to know about the strange things that happened in Harrisville. Learning about family life is always a little weird in a different way. There’s plenty of paranormal over the course of these three books to keep most readers interested through the sometimes very repetitive rehashing of family dynamics. As I mention in my blog post on the book (Sects and Violence in the Ancient World) I was interested in learning of the involvement of Ed and Lorraine Warren in the case. Andrea Perron has a perspective on this that is quite different than that in the movie The Conjuring. This was a case they didn’t solve, and, it’s clear from Perron’s account, the family didn’t really want to have solved. Life is complicated. Apparently so is death.

    I'm honestly very confused as to how this book as an average of that many stars. The story is interesting.. when the author actually tells it. There is so much unnecessary fluff in the story that it is so boring to read. It got good at the end when she had her family members all write a brief essay but other than that it was truly awful.

    The third instalment of the trilogy also has a tendency to repeat what was already said in the first and second books. I felt a sense of relief reading this instalment because I knew I was getting to the end of the story. On one hand, the intertwined musings about the universe and existence were fascinating to me as someone with an interest in spirituality and the greater meaning of life, however I fully understand how frustrating this narrative must have been towards the end of the trilogy - th The third instalment of the trilogy also has a tendency to repeat what was already said in the first and second books.

On one hand, the intertwined musings about the universe and existence were fascinating to me as someone with an interest in spirituality and the greater meaning of life, however I fully understand how frustrating this narrative must have been towards the end of the trilogy - there was no need for that much repetition. I personally really enjoyed the individual additions of the Perron family members towards the end of the book. We only heard the story from Andrea’s perspective, but hearing it from the others was a helpful way to round off the trilogy. A challenging read which took a long time to get through but it was worth it.

    As others have said, the least of the three volumes in terms of story. I won't repeat my previous reviews. I skim/skipped well more than half the book because it was tedious, platitude-laden prose that had nothing to do with the story. Based on the essays at the end, Carolyn and Christine might have written a great single volume story. It is sad that a good editor couldn't have wrung a good 150 page story out of these 3 books.

    The same lines over and over I so wanted to love these books. I absolutely believe this family but the author could easily have fit all three volumes into one. I love to read about their experiences and their feelings about them but I swear she was just trying to sound intelligent and whimsical and when I say she repeated the same things over and over it is no exaggeration. It became a chore to finish these books. The best part for me was in this one, the third volume, each of the seven family me The same lines over and over I so wanted to love these books.

It became a chore to finish these books. The best part for me was in this one, the third volume, each of the seven family members writes in their own words their thoughts about living in the farm house. The author should have let the sisters write the whole thing with her because none of them sounded so desperate as her to come off so enlightened which she failed at.

    Worse than the first two, if you can believe it.

    I've been sitting here in front of my laptop over half an hour trying to figure out what the say, but I'm speechless. Speechless because I am grateful. For not only gaining knowledge of the unknown, the misunderstood, but to feel like I've gotten to know the Perron family on a deep and personal level. You'd think we'd done more than just hang out. Had we been an a coffee shop I'm sure whatever we'd been drinking would have long since turned cold the business hours ended, time to close up, see yo I've been sitting here in front of my laptop over half an hour trying to figure out what the say, but I'm speechless. Speechless because I am grateful. For not only gaining knowledge of the unknown, the misunderstood, but to feel like I've gotten to know the Perron family on a deep and personal level. You'd think we'd done more than just hang out. Had we been an a coffee shop I'm sure whatever we'd been drinking would have long since turned cold the business hours ended, time to close up, see you next time we open, as I sat and listened. There was so much to tell! I've been entranced, deeply invested in this story and now that it's over (then again is it ever?) I am somewhat at a loss. What's next? What more can be said? What can be done? This went deeper than just a random scary ghost story. This was true story based on a family who didn't just go to hell and back. They survived. Not all of it having to do with the supernatural. I feel educated and I suppose even lighter. Maybe slightly more evolved. Oh how I wish these books weren't judged so harshly. I found each volume a treasure, and I believe I always will. A story of seven individuals, though we've never met and probably never will, has made me feel like I've taken a role, as an observer. I'll never forget these words and even though I have just finished this volume, my heart will always remain touched by its words, and its lessons. Through these volumes I daresay I may have come out a bit stronger now. Though my head is still in chaos over my sentimental feelings, I will never forget. So thank you, brave ones for sharing your stories. May we as a society learn to be more like you.

    Such a drag honestly. This book just seemed unecessary. The thoghts of the author, stories are repetitions from the first two books. This book has the seance(if you have seen her interviews you would already know what happened), letters from the family members on what happened(but nothing new there), them moving to georgia and the sad drift between the parents... but .. not as good as the first book.

    Book I really liked it. I have read the first two as well. I feel it is a privilege to get to read what happened in their lives. What they went through, and how they handled it as well.

    I had a really hard time getting through this book. When reading this you get a sense of what the family went through. This is a long story but it is more detailed than the movie like books always are. It sounds terrifying!

    Horrendous read as were the other two. Unfortunately, I bought all three volumes at the same time.
