The Secret of Laurel Oaks
by Lois Ruby
Summary: Lila & her brother travel with their parents to Louisiana where the family decides to stay at the Laurel Oaks Plantation, considered to be one of the 10 most haunted places in the United States. At first the scares appear to be gimmicks to create a haunted experience for the guests. But then the presence of real spirits becomes undeniable, one in particular seeming to reach out to Lila. It is the spirit of a slave girl who was desperately wants Lila's help in finding answers and ultimate redemption.
Thoughts: This is an intriguing ghost story with a unique historical perspective. I was so interested to read that this story was written after the author stayed in a real inn like the Laurel Oaks Plantation! Yikes!
