A woman is haunted by the ghost of a child…
A recovering soldier has a terrible experience when he disregards his host’s injunction to stay indoors after dark…
A forest is haunted by an awful event…
Two twins share a terrible destiny…

More goosebumps!

Thought I should point out that there's a minor error with the ePub file.

There's a rogue question mark in cover.xhtml that needs deleting. When the book opens it's causing part of the code to display instead of the cover.

Line 10 in Calibre's editor:

Code

Looks good otherwise. Bessie Kyffin-Taylor's not an author I'm familiar with, so I'm looking forward to getting stuck in at some point. Thanks for the hard work
