Book description
The woman in the sunbonnet had appeared three times at sunset. A thin, faceless figure in faded purple, she stood on the ridge of the hill staring at the cottage which Clara Gamadge had rented for the summer. In the isolated house, Clara tried to ignore the rumor that a woman had been poisoned in one of the bedrooms - the bedroom with the curious sealed-off door. But there were the unaccountable noises from the attic and the growing feeling that evil was in the house. And then, the murder of the sister of the original owner; their present landlady, accomplished while Clara Gamadge was sitting by her bedside following the accident of the overturned buggy. Clara waited for her detective-husband to join her and unravel the mystery and dispel her growing terror.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

In the sticky summer of 1943, and with her husband out of town on war work, a secluded cottage in the Berkshires sounds just the ticket to the newly married Clara Gamadge. The resident ghost, a slender woman in a sunbonnet, merely adds to the local color, even with the news that the bonneted woman died just one year ago, in the cottage that Clara is now renting. It's all nothing more than a deliciously spooky game, until the woman's sister is strangled while Clara dozes in a chair by her bed. The only clue: Clara's panicked memory of a woman in a sunbonnet standing at the door. Happily, Henry Gamadge--that supremely civilized gentleman-sleuth--arrives in time to calm his wife and solve the mystery (though not without some stellar help from Clara!).… (more)
