Bonner Springs was just another typical small rural wide spot in the road in northeastern Kansas between Lawrence and Topeka in the 1950s. Following World War II, the residents there, just as much of the rest of America, were trying to put the conflict behind them and go back to a regular life.

Dr. William Crisp and his wife, Rebecca, came to town for a lot of the same reasons that made them who they were from childhood: rural and easy-going. Dr. Crisp was the town physician running his practice out of their home while Rebecca took care of their son, Charlie. Rebecca had endured a horrific experience as a little girl, and by virtue of that fact, she and William went a bit overboard in trying to create a protective shell around Charlie.

With no warning, and at the total shock and dismay of the Bonner Springs community, Charlie Crisp walked calmly out behind the house one morning and hung himself. The home was abandoned and time passed, but as is often the case in such things, stories soon spread that the ghost of Charlie Crisp still lived in and around his boyhood home and as the legend grew so did the inability to sell the lovely cottage just off the main drag in town.

Years later, Matt and Darby Crawford and their two children, Melody, age 19, and Jasper, age 12, were living an idyllic life in Bonner Springs. And for a time, all was well. Matt worked as a writer, while Darby continued to build her own business. The kids were off to school, and it was all they had dreamed of. But when Melody begins to hear strange creaking and groaning sounds around the house at night, accompanied by phantom footsteps, she suspects all may not be as idyllic as they had hoped for.

Is Melody onto something or is it as she fears that she may be losing her mind and just imagining it all? Could it be that the house actually is a harbor for the legend that has survived among Bonner Springs’ residents for over sixty years? Take a trip along with Melody Crawford as she digs into her fears and anxiety to try and find the truth…

Whitby, England has one unique structure that makes it stand out amongst the rest, known as the Crooked Cottage. The cottage has been there for as long as anyone in Whitby can remember and has stood at this crazy angle to the horizon of the North Sea.

Its most recent owner, Cecilia Adams, a home-town girl, had lived there for years. Cecilia was not what you would call warm and welcoming, at least according to her neighbors, but neither was she nasty nor mean. However, she had made it clear that she preferred her privacy, and everyone in Whitby just let her be writing it off to eccentricity.

That is until her two nephews, Ted and Josh, and niece, Alice, came to live with her after their family in the south just fell apart. Whitby residents were shocked to see her take them in with open arms and soon her own personality seemed to turn on a dime as well, often waving happily to those she had previously had no time for. But then one day, the brief reprieve in Alicia’s countenance went south.

On a rainy fall night, Alice came to the kitchen of the cottage to find her Aunt Alicia unconscious in a pool of blood, apparently having tried to commit suicide. The background remained a mystery, but the fallout was that the children were removed to three separate foster homes, Alicia was committed to an asylum, and the Crooked Cottage went dark.

Years went by, and adult Alice, Ted, and Josh received letters from a solicitor informing them that their aunt had died and had named as joint owners of the Crooked Cottage. They had all just about forgotten about the little home in Whitby as they had all gone their own ways with new lives and interests. But the chance to reunite again was enough to bring the siblings back to Whitby again to figure out what to do with their unexpected windfall.

However, once they came home, new information and strange occurrences suddenly came to light, making them realize the Crooked Cottage might not have been the idyllic place they remembered from their childhood. Both Ted and Josh make discoveries that cause them to wonder if some sort of paranormal force might be at play. Alice refuses to buy into their ghost theory, yet struggles to overcome her bad memories of having been the one to find Cecilia that night long ago.

Are Ted and Josh right about the cottage being haunted? Or are they just letting their imaginations run wild as Alice tries to tell them? And once they dig deeper into the situation, is it possible that their Aunt Cecilia was not the person they had thought? Come along with our adventurous trio as they try and distinguish reality from imagination.
