A beautifully composed and disarming book, The World Before Us is the story of Jane Standen, an archivist at a small London museum.  A happening when Jane was fifteen has left her haunted by guilt, but there are other, kinder spirits who haunt Jane as well.  Told by a sort of Greek chorus of ghosts, this book unfolds subtley and elegantly.  A wonderful read for fans of Alice Hoffman, Brunonia Barry's Lace Reader, and A. S. Byatt’s Possession.
