Publisher's Summary

An original compilation of eight of Edith Wharton’s gothic stories

A ghostly presence in “The Lady’s Maid’s Bell” desires revenge against a tyrannical husband. In “Mr. Jones”, Lady Jane Lynke inherits an estate unexpectedly, and can’t make sense of how to manage the servants - especially since the caretaker has been dead for decades, but keeps giving orders. 

Meanwhile, in “Afterward”, a newly wealthy American couple moves into a large, isolated house in southern England complete with a ghost...and the mysteries surrounding the husband’s business are slowly uncovered. In “The Hermit and the Wild Woman”, the “hermit,” while a young boy, witnessed the killing of his family during an attack on his town. As a result of this trauma, he has retreated into isolation - until he meets a “wild woman” who comes to live nearby. These are just a few of the wonderful and unnerving tales gathered together in this new compilation of Wharton’s gothic stories.
