'The Library Window' is a ghost story.

There seems to be a local mystery about the window, including a dispute about whether there is even a window there at all.

Reader needs coaching

I love this story, and love Mrs Oliphant’s fluid prose and vivid imagery. The reader of this particular performance has vocal mannerisms that really irritate me. It borders on torture at moments. I’m sticking with it notwithstanding because the writing is so exceptionally good.
