The town of Lloydtown can boast of one of my own, "more earthly" haunts as a REAL haunt... they have a haunted bookshop.

The Country Bookshop was opened in a renovated barn in 1967 (a very good year!) by an enthusiastic book worm, Art Gray, who specialized his interest in Canadian History and Pioneer life. He passed away in 1984 and his widow took up the reigns of running the shop.

The ghost, according to Mrs. Gray, is an: "authentic apparition. She is a solid-looking figure. A lady in a cloak, hooded. You never see her face. She starts at twilight - at the walnut tree at the top of the driveway - and walks slowly, up or down. She doesn't bother anyone. She's quite harmless, part of the family, really."

According to local legend, a tragedy did take place on the property that might explain the ghost...

A young woman lost her baby. The "how" is not 100%... some say she killed it herself (one assumes by accident), some say it was taken from her, and some say it died naturally. Either way, the legend is that the child was lost and not long after, the woman also slipped from this mortal coil. (Again, whether this was from a "broken heart", suicide, or some other means is in dispute.)

What's odd is that, according to the book, the apparition has an unusual presence... as opposed to being frightening, it's quite a pleasant "feeling" associated with the ghost. It is reported that even dogs seem happy, wagging their tails, when the apparition is seen.
