Synopsis: "The story is told by a clergyman. Before he joined the church he met and fell in love with Miss Jeromette, a Frenchwoman alone in London. They enter on a relationship but she tells him candidly she loves another man who has deserted her. Miss Jeromette predicts the man will return to her but that she will die young and miserably. To please his dying mother the narrator becomes a clergyman and ends his association with Miss Jeromette. She dies as she predicted, and the clergyman sees a bloodstained apparition at the same time as her death. Although her lover is acquitted of murder for lack of evidence, the clergyman knows for certain who killed her."—Wilkie Collins Information Pages
