Synopsis

Ghost on the Hearth by Susan Milord

12 year old Emily leaves home to work on a farm in rural Quebec. Every night she scrapes the candlewax from the family's big stone hearth. But Emily falls ill and dies and is replaced by Jenny who finds that even though she scrapes the wax off every night it is there again in the morning.

Reviews

An adventurous new children's series. ...The books are rich with the sort of wondrous idiosyncratic detail that infuses so much oral tradition.

These stories are a valuable tool. -- Boston Globe

These stories are a valuable tool. --Boston Globe [Milord] unfolds the story through a cautious progression of page turns, steadily building the hair-prickling tension to an optimum dramatic level, and yet she skillfully treats each ghostly event with an air of calm that keeps the fear factor pulsating at a low pitch for younger ears. ForeWord These stories are a valuable tool. Boston Globe
