About the Book

Where Spirits Linger by Jacquelyn Procter Reeves digs deep into the historic past of the locations of these stories to discover the mysteries of who haunts the location and why. By researching historical documents and local lore and with the talent of a medium, we learn that phantom children sing a haunting tune about an event that killed millions. We also learn that a silent crowd walks slowly down a city street and that the ghost of a man who was lynched for murder in 1904 attacks police officers. A prominent businessman murdered two people, but why? What is the message a WWI soldier wants us to know about an attack in the Forest of Argonne? What does the Confederate colonel want from those who visit his grave? The answers to these questions and many more can be found in this fascinating book.
