Publisher's Summary

How surprising that a woman of Edith Wharton's literary stature not only believes in, but writes about, ghosts. This short story is a result of her haunting fascination and fear of both spirits and supernatural phenomena, and as Ms. Magazine says, is "flawlessly eerie".

Terrible editing ruined a fair story

The editing is so choppy that phrases are repeated in two or three instances. The story feels rushed as the reader flies past punctuation.
