One of my very favorite books of all time is Charlotte Bronte's Villette. It is such a fascinating Gothic novel. Some of the most chilling scenes involves the appearance of a shadowy nun, supposedly the ghost of a nun who was buried alive for breaking her vow of chastity. Those scenes literally make me shiver, even though I know what's going to happen.
 This picture has that same effect on me, and looks just like I imagined the scenes from the book! Such an eerie image! If you can struggle through the heavy doses of French, I highly recommend Villette. It's definitely worth the shivers if you make it through this story.
