Description

World-renowned cartoonist Seth returns with three new ghost stories for 2021.

When Lady Jane Lynke unexpectedly inherits Bells, a beautiful country estate, she declares she’ll never leave the peaceful grounds and sets about making the house her home. But she hasn’t reckoned on the obstinate Mr Jones, the caretaker she’s told dislikes her changes, yet never seems able to be found.
