Abstract:

Constance Langton, the narrator of the story, has known little but grief in her young life. Her younger sister dies of scarlatina at the age of 2, and her mother goes into perpetual mourning. Poor Constance is ignored and abandoned by her distant father, and her only succor becomes the chance that a medium at a seance might provide a way for her mother to contact the dead child. But the dead rarely answer our calls, and when Constance pretends that they do, she brings down even greater sorrow.
