Book Review: Leinster Gardens and Other Subtleties

Subtle is a good adjective to describe the tales in Leinster Gardens and Other Subtleties, a collection of short British ghost stories by Jan Edwards. Haunting, romantic, timeless, sad, and eerie: these are all adjectives that come to mind when I read this. In each tale, I felt like I was dropped into the middle of someone’s life and had to figure out what was going on along with the character. The foreshadowing in each story was superb, enough to make me want to find out more, but secretive enough to give the endings a surprise twist. There is really nothing bad to say about this book at all. These are ghost stories you can sink your teeth into!
