The Turn of the Screw (Hardcover)
The Turn of the Screw tells the story of a young governess who is sent to Bly, a large country estate, to care for two children. She has strict instructions from their guardian never to write to him, never to ask about the history of the house, and never to abandon the children. It isn't long before the Governess starts to see apparitions around the grounds. When she describes the sightings, they are identified by the housekeeper as the previous governess Miss Jessel and former valet Peter Quint, who both died not long ago. As the children's behaviour grows increasingly strange, the Governess becomes convinced that these ghosts have returned to claim Miles & Flora -and vows to protect them. ...But are the phantoms real, or is it all in the Governess' imagination?
