Disturb Not the Dream by Paula Trachtman

Disturb Not the Dream opens as five year old Jessica Desmond wanders the families large seaside mansion in the Hamptons (1938) discovering the brutally murdered bodies of her family members one by one. 40 years later, Dr. Bradley, a prominent psychiatrist, and his family rent the seaside home for a summer getaway unaware of the horrors that took place there. Soon, the Bradley's presence triggers paranormal activity and the ghastly events of 1938 begin to unfold.

This book is twisted, disturbing, and at times shocking, but I could not avert my eyes.

I read this book almost thirty years ago. I found it on the super-sale table in my college library for a few bucks. I read it that weekend. I could not put it down. I lent it to my sister and a co-worker. They both loved it. I then lent it to an old friend who moved away WITH MY BOOK! :-( That is good book...especially for on rainy or a cold winter night by the fireplace.
