In The Sherman Farm, Leza Turini writes of her teenage years spent on the farm, in the town of Burrillville, which was possessed by the spirits of past occupiers. We learn of the cruel, omnipotent Sumner Sherman, who still walks the corridors of the old farmhouse, grieving for his lost loveâ€”his daughter-in-law, Amanda. We share the haunting screams of this young, tormented woman who was finally killed on the stairs by a falling chandelier; was it an accident or was she murdered by the witch seeking revenge for her broken promise?Leza and her family witnessed terrifying paranormal activities during this time, which eventually led to the death of her beloved, hardworking father, Angelo.For those interested in the world of the supernatural or who enjoy a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, The Sherman Farm is a compelling read and one that is not for the fainthearted.
I couldn't decide whether this is a work of non-fiction or fiction.
It at first reminded me of the Amityville horror house in 1974 that a movie as well as a book were made.
This book almost seems as if 2 different authors wrote a part.
There are only 2 parts headed as chapters.
The rest are various sections with different captions.
Chapter 2, the Sherman family, is written as if it were written by a novelist that usually writes romance novels. It is fleshed out and explicit not matter of fact as the other parts.
It tells the horrifying story of the Sherman family.
Some sections of the book are repeated.
There are demons, witches, paranormal happenings , clergy, superstitions, racists, and intolerance.
As far as I could determine, there was a movie "The Conjuring" made about this house. It is hard to tell because many of the names have been changed.
If you liked the Amityville horror house , give this a try but read chapter 2 first.
