About the Book

A manuscript written by the late governess of the unidentified narrator's sister is being read aloud. The text describes how she was hired by a guy who had taken on parental responsibility for his niece and nephew after their parents' passing. The governess's new employer, Flora's uncle, seems unconcerned with parenting the kids and leaves her in control entirely.She thinks the kids are aware that there are spirits in their house. Before her death, Miss Jessel, the previous governess, and another worker, Peter Quint, enjoyed a close friendship. Since Jessel and Quint spent a lot of time with Flora and Miles before they passed away, the governess believes that the two kids had been visited by ghosts.Flora denies seeing Miss Jessel, despite the governess's conviction that she has been conversing with her spirit. Miles, who finally speaks to her that night about his expulsion, is left behind when Mrs. Grose takes Flora away to her uncle. Quint's spirit appears to the governess at the window as she tries to view it. After telling Miles the ghost no longer influences him, she discovers that Miles had died in her arms.
