Today’s episode is by the prolific Gertrude Atherton. We heard another of her stories earlier in March – The Dead and the Countess.
Today’s story, The Bell and the Fog, is a well-crafted short story with some gothic elements. It takes place on a large English estate, there are hints of darkness and the occult here and there, but the style of the writing, and the subtlety of the strong women is what I particularly enjoyed.
And now, The Bell and the Fog, by Gertrude Atherton
