A Haunted Love Story is two tales in one: a modern family's attempt to embrace their strange, spirit-inhabited home and a vintage love affair kept secret for six decades. When Mark Spencer bought the Allen House in Monticello, Arkansas, he knew it was haunted--by the spirit of Ladell Allen, who committed suicide in the master bedroom in 1948. But even more shocking, Mark found secret love letters that depict Ladell's forbidden romance. Original.

When Mark Spencer and his family moved into the beautiful old Allen House in Monticello, Arkansas, they were aware of its notorious reputation for being haunted. According to local lore, the troubled spirit of society belle Ladell Allen, who had mysteriously committed suicide in the master bedroom in 1948, still roamed the grand historic mansion. Yet, Mark remained skeptical—until he and his family began encountering faceless phantoms, a doppelganger spirit, and other paranormal phenomena. Ensuing ghost investigations offered convincing evidence that six spirits, including Ladell, inhabited their home. But the most shocking event occurred the day Mark followed a strange urge to explore the attic and found, crammed under a floorboard, secret love letters that touchingly depict Ladell Allen's forbidden, heart-searing romance—and shed light on her tragic end.

This haunting true ghost story includes several photographs of the Allen House.

Doesn't matter if you believe in ghosts or not--this is all about an old home, mysterious happenings and a tragic story that had me racing to finish the final pages.
