Miss McAllister's Ghost

Author: Elizabeth Fensham



 buy ebook 


'You can't imagine how strange it is to realise that there is no one left living who knew you,' said Miss McAllister. 'It makes you wonder if you really are alive.'
'We know you,' I replied.


When Cassandra and her brothers climb the garden wall hoping to spot the ghost in the old hollow-eyed house, they have no idea what awaits within. At first violently, then seductively, they are drawn into a world long lost, a world preserved by a woman whose memories have kept her trapped in time and place.

But do the children really know the ghostly old lady as well as they think they do, or is there something even more bizarre living under her roof - a ghost of her own?

From the author of the CBCA-winning Helicopter Man comes a story of unexpected surprises, which asks us to re-examine what we think we know of ugliness and beauty.
