A young woman starts her first job as a
governess in charge of two young orphans, Miles and Flora, at a country house called Bly.
The children are beautiful and well-behaved, but are they too good to be true? When the governess starts to  experience strange visions, she suspects that the  children are hiding a terrible secret. Are there ghosts at  Bly, or is the governess going mad?  Henry James’s classic ghost story is retold here at level B2.
