True Crime, Scary Stories, Ghost Tails and the History Behind Them.
It is wonderful that five thousand years have now elapsed since the creation of the world, and still it is undecided whether or not there has ever been an instance of the spirit of any person appearing after death. All argument is against it; but all belief is for it.

Athalia Ponsell Lindsley Murder in St. Augustine, Florida    
The murder of Athalia Ponsell Lindsley is notorious more than four decades after it occurred. The only eyewitness said a man attacked Lindsley with a machete in broad daylight on the front steps of her white mansion. Gossip swirled that neighbor Frances Bemis knew who killed Lindsley and would notify authorities. Bemis was later murdered on her nightly walk. Police arrested only one suspect for Lindsley’s murder, which remains unsolved to this day.

Haunted St. Augustine and St. Johns County
Author Elizabeth Randall    
Haunted St.Augustine Florida
St. Johns County and St. Augustine are some of the earliest settled areas in the United States, and both are home to fascinating history. The area's story is filled with tales from Native Americans, early European settlers and modern-day Floridians. In some places, the habitants of those historical moments have remained. From the Castillo de San Marcos to the Huguenot Cemetery and the authentic old drugstore, the city and the county are filled with fascinating and terrifying stories of lingering spirits.
Awesome history, I got this book expecting to read only a ghost story book, but was pleasantly pleased to find it also a history of St Augustine and the surrounding area.
Must read! Well researched with little known facts about America's oldest continuously settled community. It's written to convey facts not feelings and sensationalism.

Women in White History, Tales of Ghost Lore Reviews
Liz Randall has crafted a wonderfully offbeat narrative that describes in colorful detail a slice of Florida you won't find in the guide books. Randall helps us more fully appreciate how a supernatural world of eerie lights and scary noises and wispy apparitions of "Women in White" are a lot more a a part of the Florida character than we may realize. If you think alligators in swimming pools and giant exotic snakes are strange, you ain't see nothing yet!
-Bill Belleville Award-winning film maker and author of Salvaging the Real Florida
Author Elizabeth Randall suggests that history is somewhat fearful when it comes to capturing romance. "Women in White" know no such fear. You will find History and romance nicely intermixed. And, after all, isn't romance the stuff history is made of? A fun read!
