The ending made me cry. The first time I read it, I don't think I saw this story as being sad, but now that I am older, the reality of it is that this is a really sad story. You've got the woman in black's pain that drove her to do what she does, the town people's pain who suffer the spirits hauntings, and then that ending... I really enjoyed the writing style. It flowed beautifully.
The scene with the dog... oh my gosh!(show spoiler)
