"Dark History is a compendium of bizarre and spooky events hereabouts from the days of the earliest Swedish settlers up through a mysterious case of spontaneous human combustion (there's a catchy acronym, SHC) in Upper Darby in 1964... [T]he perfect book to keep you up all night."-- "Philadelphia Magazine"
"Throughout the book, [Green] iterates that she is writing about history that has been largely forgotten and ignored due to its dark nature. By bringing these stories to the light again, she has given her readers a great gift... I cannot recommend it highly enough."-- "Broad Street Review"
"It is a compendium of local bizarre and spooky events, stories, and customs... The book is a tribute to suburban Philadelphia weirdness, evildoing, and death."-- "Montco Today"
