Three sisters mourn the passing of their brother Edward and insinuate during polite conversation that their physician sibling, Henry, may have played some sinister part in his death. Soon after, a strange shadow appears on the wall of their sitting room; its source is a chilling mystery. Could it be a message from Edward’s departed spirit? Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, a 19th-century American author, creates an eerie atmosphere in “The Shadows on the Wall”, a story from her collection The Wind in the Rose Bush and Other Stories. Cindy Hardin Killavey gives a fraught performance, allowing the suspense to build as the story unfolds.
This spooky tale is from her most famous collection of supernatural tales, The Wind in the Rose Bush and Other Stories.
