Up until recently, Freeman has been known primarily as a feminist writer, for her classic stories like A New England Nun and The Revolt of Mother. However, she also wrote many well-crafted supernatural stories which have only recently begun to attract appreciative critical attention. These stories combine pragmatism and supernaturalism and are very much in the tradition of an Americanized Gothic.

Freeman also used the ghost story as a means of examining, indirectly, the pressures which often silenced or devalued women and their concerns. This collection contains six significant New England ghost stories which contain buried comments on the life of women at the turn of the century.

The stories included are:

  • The Wind in the Rose Bush
  • The Shadows on the Wall
  • Luella Miller
  • The Southwest Chamber
  • The Vacant Lot

      " I liked another reader's review that said these stories were very entertaining. A delightful collection of old world, atmospheric ghost stories. Rich in character and 1800s colloquialism. The author loves the words 'terror' and 'horror'. :). "

      " What distinguishes Freeman's ghost stories for me is that they're so psychologically acute. The byplay between characters, and what they are unwilling to come out and say, is really sharp and beautifully observed. She also knows how to make a story damn creepy! "

    About the Author
    Author Mary E. Wilkins Freeman

    Mary Eleanor Wilkins Freeman (1852–1930) was a prominent nineteenth-century American author. Freeman’s parents were orthodox Congregationalists, causing her to have a very strict childhood. Religious constraints play a key role in some of her works. She passed the greater part of her life in Massachusetts and Vermont.
