This dark, gothic tale is a twisted love-story of sorts which explores the theme of love truly knowing no bounds...even in death! A man's beautiful and erudite wife dies, then he remarries and his second wife tragically dies, also. However, all is not as it seems, and this surprising and perturbing supernatural story will have a listener both on the edge of their seat and pulling their loved-ones that little bit closer.
