Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book we are reading or plan to read soon.
Ghosts of Martha's Vineyard; Thomas Dresser
Arcadia Publishing - 2020
Martha's Vineyard's history, along with its fair share of strange occurrences, make it a major hub for ghost hunters and local storytellers alike. Whether you're fully in touch with the spirit world or you're a little skeptical, the Vineyard is rife with amazing coincidences, strange experiences and unknown mysteries.
That so many guests, employees, locals and visitors have experienced a visit from beyond gives credence to the basic premise that we we don't really know or understand everything that is happening around us.
I thought this would be a fun read during the month of October. I love Martha's Vineyard and am looking forward to reading about local lore. What do you think, read more or pass?
Oh definitely read more, I love a good non-fiction ghost stories book! I own quite a fewReplyDelete
