Summary

How do you know if you’ve seen a ghost? Maybe you’ll never know. But an American couple seeking an idyllic retirement in and English country house do find out...eventually.

Afterward is taken from the Victorian Anthologies series featuring short stories by classic writers of the spooky, the scary and the supernatural. Guaranteed to give you the shivers, each collection includes familiar and loved creepy tales as well as those less well-known.

With music by Benedict Edwards.

Really disappointing

In general, I love Edith Wharton's work and I love ghost stories, so this seemed like a great combination to take a chance on. Unfortunately, the narration is not great (the reader's American accents are terrible), and surprisingly, the story itself was really underwhelming. Not a lot of mystery to hang your hat on in this one. I would not recommend the title. I'd return it if I could, but Audible won't seem to let me.
