    Haha but like Tuls mentioned, even the two female ghosts were not named too. Lizzy and Hannah were just names that the guy kept to differentiate between the two! And that's an interesting move too- not to name the lead characters and let us guessing til' the end.

    Lovely story dear ILT, i m little scared to read ghost stories usually hence was just skipping team many a times, even after opening it. This month nominations dragged me here and i read the entire story in one shot.

    Amazing story and depiction, enjoyed reading thoroughly. Hearty congratulations to you.

    Hi SpringB, thank you for the wishes. I was pleasantly surprised to see the announcement myself. Not sure if I can publish as the story is already out in the internet. But will work harder on my next story and try to publish that. Thanks again springb

    Dear Kamala mam, @kkrish,
    Rebecca is one of my most favourite books. When I read the book, I felt so much in love with it and bought few copies to give to my friends. I read Jamaica Inn from the same author and was quite disappointed, that's another story. But yes, only after reading Rebecca I understood that it's ok not to name character in the book. But the reason I left 3 characters without any name is, as sofea said, I couldn't decide to keep them English or Tamil. So after so much thinking I left the names. Thank you for your interest in the story and am happy to see your comments here..
