Who doesn’t love a good ghost story? I jumped at the chance to read this book. Ghosts of Mayflower takes us into the firsthand experiences of the author’s time as an Halloween attraction orderly for the Mayflower Building at Pennhurst Asylum, located in Spring City, Pennsylvania. This is the same haunted location that The Ghosthunters filmed their 2011 Halloween special. For good reason, the paranormal experiences are frequent and quite impressive.

I enjoyed the way the author presented this book over a couple of months and documented the shift days, personal experiences, candid conversations, people who work at the now Pennhurst Halloween attraction, tons of guests, and of course ghostly apparitions along with a some things that go bump in the night. I won’t give away any spoilers because it’s such a fun ghost story read. If I had any complaints, it would be that I wanted to learn more about the history of the location, but that in no way takes away from the book.

This is a great, short read. You could read a chapter or two at a time, or devour the entire book on a stormy Saturday afternoon like I did. Highly recommend.
