Below is a short excerpt…
Everyone in the coastal town of Laurel, Maine, knew the history of Harbor House. Built in 1902 along the rocky shores of the Atlantic, Harbor House has survived over one hundred years of cold winters, snowstorms, icy winds, and death. The large house was built by Joshua Holt and his two sons, Jedediah and Samuel. One year after its completion the Holt family, which included Joshua’s wife Becky and youngest child, Kate, were all killed while boating in the Atlantic. An unexpected and merciless storm capsized their boat.
Legend has it Joshua was knocked unconscious while Jedediah and Samuel both drowned attempting to save their mother and sister. No one knows for sure what happened since there were no witnesses or survivors. What is known is the bodies of the entire family were washed ashore and eventually buried on their large property. Their names carved into pieces of wood used as markers.
After the tragic death of the Holt family, Harbor House remained empty until 1910. During that time, stories spread, mostly by the local teens, that Harbor House was haunted by the spirits of the Holt family. Some kids claimed to have seen Joshua’s ghost in the house crying and calling out to his wife, Becky. Older teens and a few adults claimed to have heard the oldest son, Jedediah, scream out the name of Eleanor Crane, his bride to be. Eleanor was supposed to have been on the boat trip with the Holt family. She bowed out at the last moment because of illness. What is known is that two months after the Holt family drowned, Eleanor, who had been distraught over her fiancé’s death, was found dead. Her body draped over Jedediah’s grave. The cause of death was cyanide, an ingredient her father used in his photography studio. Rumors spread she was pregnant with Jedediah’s baby at the time of her death.

I sat at a table for two in the small coffee shop where we agreed to meet. The server, his name tag read Henry, had taken my order: one large dark roast coffee with almond milk and a toasted onion bagel with extra cream cheese. He said it would be ready in a few minutes. I opened my laptop and booted it up. Every few minutes, I kept looking up at the door to see who was coming in. It was early yet, but you never know.
It was here in this small upstate town back in 1969 where we met. She was my first date, my first love, and the one I never forgot…. CONTINUE READING HERE
