This book looks fabulous and I love the colors of the cover!
I think the ghost story that sticks with me the most is one of the first I ever read - - a tale called "Mirror of Danger" about an English girl who goes to live with cousins after her grandmother dies and manages to meet the ghost of Alice, a girl from the Victorian era. I loved the ghost aspect of the story, as well as the Victorian connection. It was a young adult book (for the time) but I've always remembered it.

Whoops! I obviously didn't read very well. Sorry! I corrected the mistake over at my blog.

The ghost story that I love the best is the Ghost and Mrs. Muir. This is such a gorgeous love story that transcends time it makes me cry every time I read it or see the movie. It is about a sea captain who has died and a young woman who moves into his house. They become friends and then fall in love over the years. When she dies, they meet again as ghosts and walk off together into the heavens. Such as remarkable love story.
