9781401398439: The Journals of Eleanor Druse: The Investigation of the Kingdown Hospital Incident

The fascinating journals that inspired Stephen King's TV series Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital. The book is a narrative of the life of Eleanor Druse and the astonishing events at Kingdom Hospital. It tells the story of a free-thinking woman and her quest to contact the tormented spirit of a young girl trapped between the here and the hereafter. The journals follow Eleanor's life, beginning with her early interest in the paranormal, which took an intensely personal turn in 1999 when she suffered a head trauma accident and had a Near Death Experience.The story leads up to Eleanor's present-day obsession with Kingdom Hospital, a regional medical center in Lewiston, Maine, built on a site where a 19th century textile mill burned to the ground in 1869. Dozens of textile workers-mostly child laborers-were trapped underground and perished in the inferno. Somewhere beneath the new construction of the modern hospital, ineffable evil still lurks, and the helpless spirit of a child is trapped and unable to find rest. Eleanor feigns illnesses to finagle several readmissions to the hospital in order to investigate the strange goings-on there. She wants to make contact with the ghost girl, Mary Jensen, who is crying out to Druse from the hereafter. The book is a thrilling and terrifying exploration into the supernatural which will satisfy the legions of fans of Stephen King. - 'Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital' 13-part series will air Feb-May 2004 (first air date February 5, 2004), beginning and ending during the sweeps rating period. This is the official tie-in book, and will be promoted accordingly - There will be 15 hours of prime time programming for the TV movie, beginning February 5 with a two hour special, continuing to air weekly (one hour primetime shows) for 13 weeks. - ABC-TV will create an hour-long 'making of' Kingdom Hospital special that will feature our book. This special will air on ABC affiliate stations prior to the debut of The Kingdom Hospital series. FYI: ABC created an affiliate 'making of' special last year for Rose Red that featured Hyperion's The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer book, and aired it prior to the Rose Red miniseries. That affiliate television special helped to propel sales of The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer. Eleanor Druse is a career spiritualist who has devoted her time recently to organizing these journals for publication.

From AudioFile:

Sudden death, unexplained supernatural events, and interactions with ghosts come together in a hospital mystery that focuses on the paranormal in Lewiston, Maine. Having a little fun with his readers, Stephen King has created a fictional character who acts as both author and narrator of this audiobook. Druse investigates ghost sightings, encounters noncorporeal beings, and works with doctors who seek to solve the mystery of her ability to communicate with the dead. Contrary to what the audiobook cover states, an unnamed narrator reads Druse's first-person account competently and fluently as she describes her personal involvement in the events at her local hospital. An introductory letter to Stephen King creates the tie-in to the TV series "Kingdom Hospital." Druse's investigation is incomplete, encouraging listeners to await the next installment of her adventures. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
