In her 1916 ghost story, Kerfol, Edith Wharton tells of Anne de Barrigan, a young woman convicted of murdering her jealous husband.
The elderly lord was found on the stairs, apparently savaged by a pack of dogs, though there were no dogs - no live dogs - at Kerfol that day.
In these remarkable intertwining stories, Deborah Noyes returns to the manor to tell de Barrigan's story through the sympathetic eyes of her servant girl.
Four more tales slip forward in time, following characters haunted by the ghosts of Kerfol - the dead dogs; the sensual, uneasy relationships; and the bitter taste of revenge.
