In this Gothic novella from Louisa May Alcott better known for such children s classics as Little Women a Christmas house party at a grand old English estate brings together a group of family and friends whose complicated and often fraught relations are clarified and healed over the course of the holiday The hero of the tale is Maurice Treherne a young man confined to a wheelchair after saving the life of his cousin Sir Jasper Treherne Maurice s love is given to his cousin Octavia although their romance is blocked by Jasper and Octavia s mother Lady Treherne who feels that she cannot in good conscience give her daughter to a cripple Also in the party is Mrs Snowdon a beautiful young woman whose affections Jasper and Maurice once vied for and who despite her married state seems determined to renew her conuest Truths are revealed in the course of the story why was Maurice disinherited what is the true cause of the ghostly appearances in the attic is Mrs Snowdon truly without any nobler feeling and the virtuous and noble triumph whilst converting all around them to a better frame of mindHaving long been aware of Alcott s dual career as the noted author of children s stories with a strong moral character and as the anonymous creator of numerous magazine stories of a sensational and for the times less respectable nature and having long loved such works as Little Women and Little Men I have been curious to read some of the author s other work That being the case when I saw The Abbot s Ghost on a Christmas display I immediately picked it up I cannot say all told that it was really that interesting The developments were all rather predictable from the heroic self sacrifice of Maurice including the secret reason for his disinheritance to the angelic influence of Octavia I was disappointed over that the afterword gave no indication of the story s history what magazine was it published in for instance I m glad to have read it if for no other reason than the knowledge it has given me regarding the kinds of sensational stories that Jo begins by writing in Little Women during her sojourn in New York but wouldn t strongly recommend it on its own merits
