‘Sing a Mournful Melody’ is a spooky short story with a real Gothic feel to it. I enjoyed the suspense which kept me wondering right up until the very last page whether Maribelle was simply out of her mind with grief at the loss of her husband or were the voices that she could hear coming out of the Grapaphone really coming to get her. It was a very cold and stormy almost winters afternoon here in Melbourne today and ‘Sing a Mournful Melody’ was the perfect short story to read over a coffee.

Completely absorbed in her grief over losing her beloved husband, Maribelle yearns to end her own life before sunset. She sends the servants on errands as she ponders the ways in which to do it successfully. As she takes the knife in her hand she hears her name being called and, in an empty house, this is most disconcerting.

I really liked this Gothic style short story. Very atmospheric and nicely crafted. Something to read whilst partaking of coffee by the fire but perhaps not just before bedtime ;-)

A wonderfully creepy little story that plunges us into the grief and pain Maribelle feels at losing her husband. Utterly devastated by his death, she's thrown even more off kilter when his body goes missing from his crypt. The voices aren't helping her come to terms with any of it, either. Especially not when it offers her everything she wants.

*slow thumbs up to the dark, gothic feel and general air of genteel creepiness*

4.5 Stars “Sing a Mournful Melody” begins with the heart-breaking sorrow of a woman named Maribelle. She lost her husband in a horrifying manner and finds strange books about devilry in her husband’s library and elixirs that could bring death. Maribelle has a plan to die too, but a strange voice interrupts her in the act.

From the first couple of pages, the stories dark tones and Maribelle’s thoughts promise an eerie story. Juli. D. Revezzo brings Maribelle’s grief to life and conjures a haunting story with her exquisite details and storytelling. At the end, I wanted more! This could easily be a prequel for a longer story.

Poor Maribelle has lost her husband to a murderer, and she doesn't want to live without him. An entertaining, spooky read for a quick scare before bedtime!
