Ghost Stories of the Maritimes — Volume II
Ghost Stories of the Maritimes Cover
Steeped in folklore and mystery, the Maritimes are home to terrifying spirits that enrich the local history. In this sequel to his first collection, Vernon Oickle recounts stories of eerie apparitions, haunted places and unexplained phenomena that are certain to make your spine tingle: a phantom leads a gruff ship's captain to a vessel on the brink of nautical disaster; in a miraculous photograph, an image of a woman's head hovers over the smouldering ruins of Keenan Bridge in New Brunswick; a malicious poltergeist terrorizes an innocent girl in the Great Amherst Mystery, still considered one of the most infamous hauntings of all time; a wedding dress holds a curse that spells catastrophe for the seafaring grooms of two separate brides from West Dublin, Nova Scotia; in Saint John's stately Mahogany Manor, a benevolent spirit tucks in appreciative guests at night; on blustery nights in February, the wraith of a betrayed New Brunswick factory worker hammers on the pipes with his wooden leg; the spirit of an 18th-century nun horrifies the living in an endless search for her missing head; the ghost of a drowned boy leaves ominous wet footprints on the stairs of a haunted house on Prince Edward Island; experts remain baffled over the mystery of the Mary Celeste, a cargo ship whose crew disappeared without a trace in 1872; on Cape Breton Island and elsewhere, "forerunners" materialize without warning to predict the death of loved ones. For anyone fascinated by the paranormal, GHOST STORIES OF THE MARITIMES, VOLUME II, is sure to prove a chilling and unforgettable treat.
