Engaging story, HORRIBLE music

What an engaging story from a unique point of view! Melissa is a genuine and insightful story teller and she brings an intimate view to a tragic story. Definitely worth a listen but oh my god is the music terrible. The music goes on for too long and often just does NOT fit the feel of the story. So awkward and terrible.

Good story bad tunes

The story and hearing from the daughter is a twist. Enlightening to hear from the daughter and how this transformed her life. The music is bad and some of those sounds actually hurts my ears. Had to skip ahead a certain times.

Horrible

Very attention seeking! I don’t understand why the daughter visited the Ex or why she keep tying the story to herself. The daughter is very attention seeking just like her father! You were a young kid let it go. Nooooo you didn’t see blood on the ceiling and noooo there’s no ghost. Please just tell the story
