I read it online from the New York Public Library's ebook section, but you can also find it online for free. It's very short book, just 137 pages in my ebook. The story is about a governess who is hired by a gentleman to watch his niece and nephew. The two childrens' parents have died and their uncle does not really want the responsibility. What happened to the childrens' previous governess? Are the children really angelic or are they mischievous? Is the governess really seeing ghosts?
While it's not an amazing story (perhaps due to my having seen too many horror/scary movies) it is a perfect ghost story to read in October for this challenge. I will say that I will be wanting to read more novels by Henry James in the future.
**If you've read the book, what did you think about the ending? Make sure you note :Spoiler: to not ruin the ending for others. Thanks!
This has been my third book for the R.I.P. III Challenge
