Synopsis

A Mistletoe Bride is murdered on Christmas Eve, 1893. Her ghost haunts the family stately home, Willow Manor, until her remains are discovered and the truth revealed. Set in the present day and Victorian England, the tragic young bride can at last share her story and put right the terrible injustice that destroyed her family and those she loved. The city of Oxford s Randolph Hotel, and the village of Minster Lovell, the site of the stately home, are the locations for this heartwrenching story of deceit, love and betrayal. The Mistletoe Bride, a local legend, was popularised in a poem by Thomas Haynes Bailey in 1884, and then set to music to become the popular song: The Mistletoe Bough!"

Five Boundless Stars

The Mistletoe Haunting was a great ghost story, one told by the ghost! You don't see that often. I have always enjoy a good ghost story and this one is sad and very chilling down to the soul, especially the ending. It literally gave me chills! Ellen is to be married, but unbeknownst to her she will never be happy because of a jealous sister and a betraying fiancee. She has all odds stacked against her, but she doesn't know the truth. This was a very well written, chilling tale of love, loss, and betrayal. I felt for poor Ellen, she really deserved to be happy. She wanted to be a bride and yet her happiness was so quickly taken from her. Charlotte was indeed evil! No other words can describe her. I know, I couldn't stand her from the second she was introduced! I'm not sure if this is just a work of fiction or if this was an actual story from the past that now haunts and tells such a sad tale. It was definitely a fantastic ghost story and in my opinion would make a great movie!
