Summary, etc.:
One of the most daunting ghost stories to ever be written, Henry James' Turn of the Screw follows the transformation of Miles (age 10) and Flora (age 8) from well behaved children to deceitful liars. When a governess comes to their country estate to look after the children, she and Flora are separately visited by ghost; however Flora denies the experience and Miles claims to never have been visited by one, even when evidence supports an evil plot between the children and the ghosts. Devoid of common ghost story stereotypes, this timeless story is full of suspense, supernatural phenomenon, and thrills to frighten and delight any listener.
