Red Rose Paranormal - Everyday paranormal tales and classic cases from Lancashire
There is also an ebook version available of this title, it is for sale from Amazon or your usual provider.
Here is a collection of stories mixing some of the most compelling and enduring traditional ghostly stories from Lancashire with more recent uneasy everyday experience from the county.
There are stories here from the manor houses, halls and theatres of the county towns, ranging from apparitions of the witch-hunting days and from the Tudor persecutions of recusants.
Here the reader will be told about spirits from the other world, some loitering by the place of their violent death, and others haunting a place they perhaps cannot leave, even in their passing from this world.
These are confrontations with the dead, collected from across the county. What they all have in common is a shaky, nervous recall of encounters with restless souls, sometimes in places where they have been met before.
The author has gathered and selected these Red Rose stories with a strong awareness of the unsettled and sometimes horrendous social and religious history of one of Britain’s most paranormal shires, taken from old sources and from personal anecdotes.
