I found the subject interesting enough to finish the book. However, Ms Ashley either needs to take an English writing course or hire an editor. Objects and locations are reported to perform amazing actions: not because they are haunted, but because the writer does not grasp the rules of grammar. We are told that the ancestors of the original owners inhabit one home now, not as ghosts but as living persons-in other words they are really the DEscendants of those venerable ANcestors.
The reader is pretty good, although I was rather ruefully amused by her during the story of a plantation owned by a French American family. She pronounces the names with the usual American pronunciations, which didn't bother me. But then, she tells us of a portrait of one of the ladies which was painted by John "Sarjon", meaning John Singer Sargent a famous BRITISH painter. Why she wanted to sound French for this one not French name is anyone's guess.
In case you do not think grammar is important, dear readers, please understand that when it is not used correctly, the meaning of a statement can often becomes confused or even lost in the mess.The reader or listener must then try to figure out what they are being told and may go away with the wrong meaning.
Bless your little ol' hearts!😉
