Sans blood, gore, ghouls or ghosts, Mrs. Oliphant’s most famous horror story, which features a perambulating juniper bush, is far from chilling and only mildly suspenseful. Instead of sending a frisson down your spine, this tale of family devotion may in fact warm the cockles of your heart.

If you prefer a story of uncanny misfortunes, difficulties, and unremitting sadness read Mrs. Oliphant’s own heart-rending biography.
