"The Phantom Lover" is one of Veron Lee's most famous works. It is a strange but very effective story, about a powerful bond that is so strong it reaches even across death. In many ways it reminds one of Henry James story "The Turn of the Screw". Is it a story of mental illness and weird imaginings - or of life beyond the grave? Either way, it is a look at the interrelatedness of the past and the present, the living and the dead.
