really liked it
bookshelves: 8-star, british, classics, own
Read in November, 2008 — I own a copy

This collection includes:
1. Disappearances
2. The Old Nurse’s Story
3. The Squire’s Story
4. The Poor Clare
5. The Doom of the Griffiths
6. Lois the Witch
7. The Crooked Branch
8. Curious, If True
9. The Grey Woman
The first two stories were fine but didn’t grip me particularly, and Curious, If True was an unusual tale about a party attended by fairy tale characters. But I enjoyed the remaining stories very much, particularly The Doom of the Griffiths, and possibly my favourite, Lois the Witch.
