Don't Call Them Ghosts: The Spirit Children of Fontaine Manse- A True Story
In 1971, the author and her family moved into a historic home known as the Fontaine Manse. Two days after moving in, she and her husband had an extraordinary experience that left them with no doubt that unseen residents occupied the house, too.
This is the true story of how Kathleen McConnell came to know and care for the spirit children who lived in the attic of the mansi
Waktu kecil, saya sangat takut berada di tempat yang gelap karena saya merasa ada makhluk berwajah seram yang akan menangkap, menculik, atau mungkin mencelakakan saya. Mungkin hal ini terjadi karena anak tetangg ...more
The author has a very different lifestyle than I do--she was raised in a different time, in a different part of the country, with very ...more
On the face of it, it is an great - and unusual - story of a haunting and how the author struggled with her experiences before accepting what was going on with her house. However, the tone the author sometimes takes with her writing is irritating.
There are several places in the writing, most of them in the first 80 pages, where Ms. McConnell goes to great pains to let the reader know how wonderful ...more
Strange things seem to happen in McConnell's house that she and her family move into. When these strange things start happening, she then decides to try and investigate what is actually going on in her home and ...more
This time, the author, Kathleen McConnel, wrote in the first person. She wrote the way one would speak to another person. It wasn't just a story...it was a direct narrative of what her experiences were in the Fontaine Manse. She had an amazing paranormal experience. The "other children" (d ...more
It's a true story about how this woman who moved into a house with his husband. They experienced something very great.. they took care of spirit children in the house. IN the beginnning of the story, i didn't really "get" into the book as i thought i would in every other story, mostly because i never heard of any supernatural story dealting with human beings "taking care" of spirit children. Usually, it's about how the s ...more
Kathleen McConnell had an interesting story to tell, and tell it she did, some 20-plus years after the fact. No doubt the memories and experiences were seared into her memory. Like other reviewers have noted, it's not professionally crafted. Still, it was a compelling read and I finished it quickly. My favorite part was a segment after the conclusion of the book in which her children recorded their impressions and observations of ...more
kesan awal pasti jahat (versi bawang merah bwang putih)...
tapi g semua ibu tiri jahat, bukti na para ibu yg mengasuh anak angkat...

Diangkat dari kisah nyata, pengalaman luar biasa seorang Ibu yang 'mengasuh' tiga hantu anak yang tinggal di rumahnya... Bagian terakhirnya sediiiiih..., yang jelas gue gak minat mengalami hal yang sama seperti Kathleen Mc Connell ini, syerem lah yaw..
Tapi, kok terjemahannya gak enak ya... gue sering gak ngerti maksudnya apa.. udah gitu typo merata di mana-mana, parah banget..
Takes place in Ky. The author is not a good writer. That is part of the charm of this story. You can tell she wrote her own story.
Interesting epilogue includes addtional information and accounts about others that lived with her when the haunting occurred.
It's not as creepy as the title sounds. You really get to understand and feel for Kathy who fell in love with this house and ends up finding out it's 3 spirits of children that live in their new home.
My heart ache for the children. Kathy bonds with the children. It was a wonderful book :)
Namun yang memperburuknya adalah jalan cerita yang agak bertele-tele, mungkin bila penulis bisa mengajak pengalamannya ini dari segi orang-orang lain disekitarnya, tulisan ihni bisa lebih baik lagi
