One of the author's ten favorite ghost stories, as shared at Publishers Weekly:
The Woman in Black by Susan HillRead about another entry on the list.
Borrowing heavily in tradition and tone from the great gothic novels, Hill’s novel, like The Turn of the Screw, begins with a narrative: a man named Kipps tells the story of a strange and secluded house and the woman who haunted it, presaging the death of children. Deliciously creepy, and subsequently made into a good movie.
The Woman in Black is one of Kate Mosse's top ten ghost stories.
