Life Goes On
Henry and Carol Dunaven, a youngish couple, purchase the former Gladys Chetman house and apple orchard, a real estate acquisition with a hidden past. Somewhere on the estate, something or someone is buried. It is this hundred-year-old secret which draws the purchasers into a series of eerie encounters. At times, a young female spirit haunts the house and occasionally wields her control over Carol. In addition, the ghosts of the Civil War dead are brought to life during each violent storm to perform their endless combative roles. Too often, Henry is a witness to the unnerving carnage. As a spectator to this ghoulish imagery, he brings his own sanity into question.
Even more strange are the local people. They remain cold, distant, and at times hostile. Many residents advise departure, while some enact their own brand of violence and destruction. The turbulence erupts because two relatives of Gladys Chetman don't want anyone living on the property, especially in such close proximity to the rather old but devastating secret held somewhere within.
The Dunaven couple meets every adversity bravely. Besides, with the help of two honest hired hands, the brunt of the work is equally distributed. Unfortunately, over time their ordeal becomes unbearable. The townsfolk won't cooperate much, if at all in most instances, and neither will any law enforcement agency. Too many people fear the wealthy Chetman brothers and their ruffians. Therein, Henry Dunaven launches his own crusade to drag this tormenting dilemma into the open. Eventually, he discovers all of the facts regarding the century-old mystery.
The consuming story unfolds in a series of misfortunes, periods of humor, and moments of tender consideration, all events which subsequently lead Henry and Carol to their chosen horizon.
Jack o Lanterns USPS Forever First Class Postage Stamp U.S. Halloween Autumn Sheets ( 20 Pumpkin Stamps) (Book of 20)
In the Spirit of Halloween, the U.S. Postal Service issues these delightfully eerie stamps featuring photographs of four different jack-o'-lanterns. These creatively carved pumpkins have been symbols of Halloween in the United States since the late 19th century, not long after celebrations of the holiday began here.
The jack-o'-lanterns were carved by Paul Montanari and photographed by Sally Andersen-Bruce.
Brought to North America by immigrants from Ireland and Scotland, Halloween became a distinctively American celebration that transcended social boundaries and ethnic origin. After World War II, widespread enthusiasm for trick-or-treating gave the holiday a youthful emphasis, but since the 1970s adults have increasingly joined the festivities once again: a 2014 survey showed that nearly 67 percent of the American population celebrates Halloween in some way.
With customs and traditions that vary widely by community, Halloween now inspires parades and revelry, corn mazes and haunted houses, neighborhood and school parties, jack-o'-lantern and pumpkin festivals, and even pumpkin-catapulting. No matter how or where people observe this ever-changing holiday, it remains a much-anticipated celebration of the macabre in the face of approaching winter.
These stamps are the first Halloween-themed stamps to be issued by the U.S. Postal Service.
Art director Derry Noyes designed these stamps, which are being issued as Forever stamps in booklets of 20. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.
