Summary

When John Hanley makes his lonely journey home from London for Christmas in 1956, his train is delayed due to snow in Shropshire. His wife has left him. He thinks his father won't notice if he doesn't arrive. Waiting for the last train, alone on the platform, a chance encounter with a stranger changes his life forever.

Intended for those seeking a traditional short ghost story to listen to by the fire on those dark winter nights...

Excellent stories for a December night

Amazing detail and descriptions combined with unexpected endings-what more would you want in a ghost story?

Entertaining

I enjoyed the stories, it’s a short listen but I listened to it wrapping Christmas presents and it really put me in the festive mood.

Enjoyable.

Enjoyable ghost stories, with great twists. Narration was good, but not sure on the Scottish accent.

perfect chills!

I loved every dark, melancholy tale in this short book. perfect for a cold winter's evening. I wish it didn't end. Narrator's performance suited the stories.
