The Dead and the Countess

It’s story time once again. Snuggle up, but beware of things that go bump in the night! Today, we’re taking a trip of the imagination to a cemetery in France. The dead there are resting peacefully, until a new railway wakes them up! An old priest tries to help them return to rest while he helps the soul of a recently dead countess to find peace. It’s Gertrude Atherton’s “The Dead and the Countess.”

This story is part of Biblioasis’s 2022 set of Ghost Stories for Christmas, designed and decorated by the acclaimed cartoonist known only as Seth.
