The story traces the tale of a young governess Dani who gets hired by a man to take care of his niece and nephew at his family house. When the Governess arrives at the country house she feels that there are supernatural apparitions living inside the house. The nephew is going to a boarding school and the niece is residing in the country house located at Essex.
The names of the children are Miles and Flora and their uncle gives the full charge of the children to Dani. There is also a housekeeper named Hannah who looks after the house. The original book led to a lot of disputes amongst the critics. Many claimed that the supernatural occurrences were part of the governess’s mind and not a real incident.
