The Mirror By Kate Mosse20161027

A new story for Radio 4 by Kate Mosse, author of Labyrinth, The Taxidermist's Daughter and The Winter Ghosts. One of a series of stories of the supernatural from Stephen King, Kate Mosse and John Connolly.

Toussaint. The Eve of All Saints. A time when the veil between our world and the next is as thin as a spider's web. A time when ghosts and unquiet spirits wait in the shadows for the darkness to fall. When night comes, or so it is said, so come they to claim the souls of those destined to die in the coming year. On this day, in the year 1883, in a remote village in the foothills of the Pyrenees, a mother struggles through a long labour to bring her baby into the world.
