A carefully crafted spooky story which takes the traditional theme of an unwise walk through haunted woods, and adds a more mature dimension to it. The author creates a genuinely unsettling atmosphere, where delusion and hallucination overlap with the bitter loss of a loved one.

I found it a little tricky to untangle the threads, in fact; keeping the two sisters separate wasn't straightforward (maybe some more familiar names would've helped?)

But overall this was an enjoyable interlude. Not just a supernatural scary story, but one with more mature emotional involvement about the nature of love and sacrifice.
