Do you like things that go bump in the night? Maybe ghosts orspirits which stayed in this realm for reasons unknown. Then The Haunting of Reginald Bonner by Willow Cross is just what the doctor ordered.
We open with Reginald losing his precious and loving wife Annie, just after giving birth to their son who he feels he will have to bury with his mother. Is he too weak to make it, to survive? Yes, he is strong enough and survives. He is happiest when his Mother is with him. He laughs, coos, typical baby behavior and Reginald just can’t understand, grasp what is happening. For whatever reasons for no reason at all the child stops crying, and stares off into the room. Does he have a mental illness, Reginald is beyond himself but Faith Hicks who comes to help with the child knows differently.
Annie’s spirit is still amongst them. Faith knows it and Reginald thinks himself going insane from exhaustion, not getting the sleep he is deprived of. What is he to do? He relies on Faith, starts to have nothing to do with his son and suddenly begins to travel frequently leaving the boy with Faith. There are times his son cries or is fussing and he feels the floor or his bed vibrate. No matter where Reginald is in his house, he feels it.
Annie, such a loving Mother, smiles down on her son, becomes increasingly angry with Reginald and makes her presence known and still he thinks he is going insane, he needs to get away, so he does. Is Annie punishing her husband from beyond for his behavior, he way he treats his son “lil Reggie?”
He meets a young lady on his travels to a conference, her father prominent, so the charm is turned on.
Dr. Mueller and his daughter Felicity, oh how Reginald is smitten he with the thought of wealth, a wife for his son, a companion in his bed.
Read on and see what becomes of Reginald, lil Reggie and Felicity.
