Eleanor Druse has always been interested in the paranormal, but her fascination intensifies after she has a near-death experience at Kingdom Hospital while visiting a childhood friend who has just attempted suicide. Eleanor is treated for a mysterious condition at Boston General Hospital in Massachusetts, where she falls under the care of her nemesis, a surgeon named Stegman, who doesn't believe in Eleanor's psychic gifts.

Eleanor escapes the clutches of Stegman and returns home to Lewiston, Maine, where she hears of more strange occurrences at nearby Kingdom Hospital. She feels compelled to investigate and enlists her reluctant son Bobby, an orderly there, to aid her. Eleanor discovers that the hospital rests on the site of a textile mill that burned to the ground after the Civil War, killing many workers, including child laborers. She becomes convinced that the spirit of one girl, Mary Jensen, is trapped in the hospital, and that the apparition seeks resolution for her grisly death. She also senses other evil presences in the ancient hallways, including the spirit of a physician whose past may be intimately bound up with the child's spirit and with Eleanor's childhood as well.

These carefully kept journals trace Eleanor's investigations into Kingdom Hospital, from the beginning of her covert work up until its stunning and terrifying conclusion. The journals are a fascinating work, providing insights into the very nature of the spirits that haunt the hereafter.

This is the fascinating and thrilling exploration into the supernatural that inspired the television event Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital.

    " This book is better than I had hoped! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 2/7/2014

    " Much like The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer is a companion to Rose Red, this book goes along with the miniseries Kingdom Hospital. Probably of interest to fans only. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel Nowakowski | 1/26/2014

    " Watched the tv programme and liked it so I decided when I saw the book that I'd try it. It was ok. They developed the tv series much more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonya Flanigan | 1/16/2014

    " The show was much better, that is a rare. I found the writing juvenile, reminding my why I generally do not like Stephen King. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 1/9/2014

    " Not as scary as I'd hoped for and it seemed pretty unbelieveable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesa Miller | 1/5/2014

    " It's my understanding this was written after the series aired.I watched the series & found it kind of hard to follow.The book flowed much better but the ending was left wide open as if there is another "journal".Other than that,it was a good read.How could it not be,coming from Master King. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 12/30/2013

    " A good companion read to the stellar TV series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen McGlashen | 12/27/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. This book is more like trailer for the kingdom hospitl series, so don't expect an ending. It's purpose is to set you up to want to see the series and that's exactly what it did for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matt Siden | 12/24/2013

    " This King book was just a quickie licensed tie in to the short-lived TV series Kingdom Hospital. The series itself was a weak remake of a Von Trier's better mini-series. The book follows the lead of the series. Just disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darlene Grant | 12/21/2013

    " Good story that leads you up to the TV series. Now I need to watch the TV series again to find out what happens. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gevera Bert | 11/27/2013

    " Very disappointing. Not what I thought it would be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diana | 11/24/2012

    " I picked this book up because it was free, and although it's not the worst thing I've ever read, I found it dry and unconvincing. It's obviously fiction, Eleanor Druse does not exist. Not the worst, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginie | 9/18/2012

    " Entertaining enough but I think I really need to watch the series.I liked Sally's humour and energy although she is 75 when she writes her journals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy Hortaridis | 6/24/2012

    " Wish there was a little more to the story, ended too soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 6/17/2012

    " I don't know much about the supernatural, or noetics or psychoparanormal phenomena or anything like that. This was a good, old-fashioned ghost story. Very fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 12/30/2011

    " would be more but king didn't finish the book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa James | 7/21/2011

    " Stephen King SHINES in this book, written, like Red Rose, in a journal form, so it's almost believable as fact to those who may not even realize it's fiction! Totally spooky, and my hat is off to the Master! The mini-series was good too, but not as good as the book :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimber Hansen | 1/5/2011

    " I remember watching Stephen King's "Kingdom Hospital" on TV and was confused as I didn't remember situations like the book. I realized upon finishing that the book ended where Stephen King's series began. It was interesting and a good read for those who are interested in psychic gifts. "
