  • Lowcountry Ghosts: Stories of Alice Flagg, Confederate Blockade Runners, and Haunted Beads on Feb. 26, 2012

    As others have said, this is a little book with which contains 3 ghost stories: The White Lady of Hermitage, Ghost Ships and The Wachesaw Ghosts. The stories are told by "two sixty-ish southern ladies in sturdy shoes", Miss Genevieve and the author's Cousin Corrie Dusenbury. I received this book through LibraryThing's Member Giveaway. I was not sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by "Lowcountry Ghosts", and recommend it. Reading this book was like sitting in a comfortable chair in a dimly lit room with a small group of friends, listening to two cute "old" ladies telling stories meant to excite...not necessarily frighten. I'm from New England,and have never been to the Lowcountry. Ms. Michelsohn did an amazing job of weaving enough description into the stories to make it seem like I'd visited Brookgreen Gardens (and to make me hope I get the opportunity to visit!) I will definitely read the author's longer work, Tales from Brookgreen, from which these stories were excerpted.
