What a strange strange story. I seem to be reading a lot of them lately. Another shorter tale of a governess coming to a house that has a spooky history and trying to save the lives of herself and the children. Easy to read in one sitting/day despite its obscurity. After getting a couple chapters in the story started to become more clear and interesting. Although, at the end, I was still curious and felt I could have used more information.
