The Abbot's Ghost, or Maurice Treherne's Temptation 

From the author of ‘Little Women’, this Christmas story follows the young Maurice Treherne, who has recently become crippled after saving his friend Jasper’s life.

All the while, Maurice is in love with Jasper’s sister, Octavia, whose mother tries everything to keep them apart.

‘The Abbot’s Ghost’ is one of Louisa May Alcott’s hidden gems, full of heart-warming moments, scandals, and perhaps even a real ghost...
