The Ghosts of Kerfol

The Ghosts of Kerfol Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In her classic ghost story ?Kerfol, ? Edith Wharton tells the tale of Anne de Barrigan, a young Frenchwoman convicted of murdering her husband, the jealous Yves de Cornault. The elderly lord was found dead on the stairs, apparently savaged by a pack of dogs, though there were no dogs no live dogs ? at Kerfol that day. In this remarkable collection of intertwining short stories, Deborah Noyes takes us back to the haunted manor to tell Anne de Barrigan's story through the sympathetic eyes of her servant girl. Four more tales slip forward in time, peering in on a young artist, a hard-drinking party girl, a young American couple, and a deaf gardener who now tends the Kerfol estate. All of these souls are haunted by the ghosts of Kerfol - the dead dogs, the sensual yet uneasy relationships, and the bitter taste of revenge.

Synopsis:

In an enthralling work of Gothic suspense, Edith Wharton's classic ghost story "Kerfol" inspires five connected tales set in the same haunted manor over the centuries.
