AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"This is a comedy that most adroitly blends humour and fantasy, as the ghosts associated with a family heirloom (the fourposter) appear before its latest owner, a young wife, who finally mistakes a burglar under her bed as another of her

ancestors. This results in some diverting dialogue."
