Summary

True paranormal story!

As seen on The Travel Channel’s The Dead Files, My Haunted House and the Animal Planet’s The Haunted, Hanover Haunting will leave you sleeping with the lights on. The haunting was so extreme, Amy Allen from The Dead Files warned DeAnna, “There are five men here and they all want you dead!” 

As DeAnna Simpson stood on the sidewalk, she knew she had to own the house on Maple Avenue. It called to her in a way she couldn’t explain. What she didn’t realize was that her dream home was filled with unspeakable evil. Once the house locked her tightly in its grips, it wouldn’t let go. 

After investigating the house, paranormal legend John Zaffis urged DeAnna to flee the house before it was too late. “You need to get out of here, Dee. It’s ancient. You have to leave. This thing has been here on this land for millions of years, and it’s known about your existence before you were born,” he told her. 

Includes personal accounts from leading paranormal investigators, including John Zaffis, Reverend Bill Bean, Sean Austin and Eric Vitale from The Travel Channel’s Ghost Loop, Shaman Michael Robishaw, Chris Nicoletti, David Allen Brown, Pamela Barry, Melissa Leaper, Marc Arvilla and Lauren Sheridan.

Compelling story

I have just finished listening to this book, and have really enjoyed it. The narrator was superb, and actually sounded as if he was enjoying reading it. His sense of pace and dramatical effect made it a page-turner!
I only have one question for DeAnna - why, when she was aware that the spirits were annoyed with all the "ghost hunts" , did she persist if she was so afaid of reprisals?

What a strong woman

I have heard about this case many times, I love ghosts, ghost shows, podcasts, websites and more about true hauntings. What this woman endured in that house is just unimaginable. This book is the true story, You get to hear about when Dead Files came to help, John Zaffas and more known and unknown Ghost hunters. This book is one that is hard to hit the stop or pause button on. If you enjoy the paranormal and like REAL hauntings this is a book you should not miss.

Tense, suspense filled true story

The house of horrors Deanna and Tom lived in would drive anyone crazy. From shadow people, to night attacks to scratches and burns. It makes the Amityville House look tame in comparison. For over a decade they dealt with awful paranormal issues, and greedy paranormal hunters only looking to use them for fame.

Great narration and well written, it will keep you at the edge of your seat!

Really good read with full of information!

Only complaint I have about this book, is that one fact was untrue regarding the recount of The Dead Files show featuring Amy Allen and Steve D. The book said Amy did not pick up on the smells in the house, but in fact she did in the episode. No buggy, but just wanted to clarify that info. Great read anyhow!👍🏽😎

When Leaving is Not an Option

They say, “Careful what you wish for, you just might get it.”  DeAnna Simpson wanted the home on Maple Street and she wanted to marry Tom.  She knew the house was perfect for her and Tom and a place for her children and grandkids to visit.  Her joy was short-lived as the past residents of the house made themselves known in violent and deadly ways. 

Seeking relief, DeAnna contacts paranormal groups, the local Catholic Church, and the Dead Files TV program.  Well-known paranormal experts including John Zaffis, Shaman Michael Robishaw, Chris Nicoletti, and others investigate the home. All advise DeAnna to leave immediately. Unfortunately, the ancient spirit refuses to allow DeAnna the opportunity to leave.  The ancient spirit that controls the house and keeps the other spirits prisoner feeds off her and Tom.  Every effort DeAnna makes to leave is thwarted by the ancient spirit.  Now she and Tom are gravely ill and continue to suffer for years before the climactic conclusion.

Joni Mayhan, the author and publisher, masterfully tells the story of DeAnna and her home. 

Characters are carefully developed, her research into paranormal investigations is thorough and clearly relayed.  The plot and storyline flow smoothly, a few twists, and a satisfying conclusion.

The narrator, Kerr Lordygan, narrated the book in a soothing tone with just the right amount of. Inflection to keep the listener engaged.  I found Lordygan’s voice soothing and smooth.  His narration was flawless.

There were no issues with the production or quality of this audiobook.

Very horrifying!

I felt horrible for Deanna and especially losing 15 years of your life in a dark frightening house. The whole time, throughout this book, I was very upset at Tom for being in denial and watching his wife go through this alone! But overall, the book kept you on the edge.

Really good!

I enjoyed this book very much and like the way it was written. I don't think I could have stayed in that house for along as they did. I would have been out immediately regardless of taking a loss financially. Awesome story!
