Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch's classic ghost story defies its genre. Miss Le Peyt soon discovers a supernatural cohabitant at her newly rented seaside cottage. Hardly a terrifying ordeal, it turns out Le Peyt's ghost has a knack for housework and an upstanding Victorian conscience, protecting the cottage from would-be dwellers that fail to meet her moral standards. Performer Cindy Hardin Killavey captures the quiet intimacy of Le Peyt's fireside tale. Reminiscing on her favorite ghost, the elderly matriarch is lost in a memory, impervious to the dismissive chuckles of her patronizing nieces. Killavey lends Le Peyt a voice that is stoic but steadfast, brimming with the wistful wisdom of a life well lived.
