An easy read of fourteen short stories and a one act play, all with a mystical theme which Kate Mosse is so good at portraying. Each is accompanied by an author’s note and although some have been published before, have not appeared together as a complete work. Set in Sussex, Brittany and the Languedoc, some are reworked folk legends, others original ghost tales and some reminiscent of the author’s novels. The title story tells of a young bride at her wedding feast who invites the younger guests to play hide and seek. She is never found, why and what happens is very sad.
These tales are richly populated by spirits and ghosts seeking revenge; by grief-stricken women and haunted men coming to terms with their destiny - all rooted deep in the elemental landscapes of Sussex, Brittany and the Languedoc. The collection will include The Mistletoe Bride, La Fille de Melisande, Red Letter Day, The Lending Library, The House on the Hill...
