Description:

The Haunted Woman is in essence a classic haunted house tale. An engaged couple, along with an aunt, hear of a house to let and so visit it to test its suitability. The house has a strange, locked room; a strange music is heard; a stairway appears in a wall, and a room at the top leads into three other rooms, each of which has an uncanny atmosphere; a marvelous landscape is seen out the window of one of these rooms; one's true nature blossoms while in the rooms at the top of the stairs, but all memory of visiting the room vanishes upon descending the stairs. The handling of the marvelous, and especially the nature of this forgetting could not have been handled any better by Lindsay, and is the reason for plodding through accounts of picnics and social dynamics; which in this case is actually minimal compared to his later book The Violet Apple.—Eddie Watkins on goodreads.com.
