This short story is an excellent representative of the Victorian era Gothic prose. Bright, capacious, in the details and most importantly interesting. An elderly governess decided to share a scary story from her past by the fireplace. When the woman was still young, she went to help her aunt for an ancient old woman who had survived from her mind. It was a little uneasy when Madame Crowley got up from her bed in a crazy outfit, in high heels, with long nails and false eyebrows and scared the girl half to death. The mumbling of the dead boy added to the sensation of something terrible.
