In 1970, Roger and Carolyn Perron purchased what seemed to be the home of their dreams: the Arnold Estate, located just beyond the village of Harrisville, Rhode Island. It seemed the idyllic setting in which to raise a family and the couple unwittingly moved their five young daughters into the ancient and mysterious farmhouse. But soon the true nature of the house made itself known: It was a portal to the past and a passage to the future. Secrets were kept and then revealed within a space shared by mortal and immortal alike. Time suddenly became irrelevant, fractured by spirits making their presence known then dispersing into the ether. One such spirit called Bathsheba was unwittingly unleashed and set about asserting her dominance as the mistress of the house in a myriad of ways, including the form of fire.

The subject of the 2013 film “The Conjuring,” the story of the house in which Andrea Perron spent ten years of her life has been a closely-guarded experience. Ed and Lorraine Warren investigated this haunting in a futile attempt to intervene on the family’s behalf and they consider the Perron family saga to be one of the most compelling and significant of a famously storied career as paranormal researchers. Join Andrea Perron, the eldest sibling, for an unabridged account of a supernatural excursion. This tale is an inspiring testament to the resilience of the human spirit on a pathway of discovery: an eternal journey for the living and the dead.
