Anatomy of a Haunting
A Journalistic Approach to Understanding the Paranormal
By: Barbara Holland
About the Book
This book is an autobiography. At times the author pushes the envelope and even touches on the taboo at her own expense. Her life is an “open book,” and she offers no excuses for her follies and gross errors in judgment. But make no mistake, this is only a small portion of her anatomy of a haunting.
A few pieces of original poetry and some photographs make this book somewhat unique, but it is the well-kept journal of a four-year haunting that inspired it. Although Holland shares her own perceptions of this frightening time in her life, it plays out as a mystery and allows the reader to come up with their own conclusions. Whether the reader is a believer or a skeptic, this book will fuel their fire. For the ghost hunter or clergy, it will give further insight. For those experiencing their own haunting, there is a chapter devoted to dissecting its parts to better understand the entities they may be dealing with. To those involved in the study of the paranormal, this detailed, first-person account of a haunting will offer understanding that can only come from one living the nightmare.
As this book seemed to meet its conclusion, a plethora of insights and spiritual experiences came to fruition. This book is so much more than a scary story; it is a firsthand account of hope and coming through the pitfalls of life a better person. The fear factor won’t disappoint, its conclusion will catch the reader unaware.
