Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

A widower has a secret he'll admit only to himself: Midge's death from pneumonia comes as a relief. Yet now that he's free of her hectoring demeanor, somehow he still feels her presence. Does he feel guilty? Or does that weather-beaten apple tree in the orchard bear an uncanny resemblance to her hunched and beaten posture?

Review Quote*

Praise for Christmas Ghost Stories

"I just bought my set of these and they … are … PERFECT. I hope they do these every year."-Patton Oswalt

"For Seth, this is really a labour of love." -Peter Robb, Ottawa Citizen
