Eerie and rather sad story of a bored and lonely housewife who finds herself haunted by a WWII airman who died in the war. Sad to think of millions of young lives snuffed out and their desperate energy still with us trying to claim what they have lost.
It?s the 1950s in Yorkshire; rationing is still in effect. Newlywed Isabel Carey is cold. She and her doctor husband Philip have just moved to Kirby Mintern to a flat with a heavy-footed landlord upstairs. When Isabel finds an RAF greatcoat and begins to add it to blankets at night she finds herself visited by Alec, an RAF captain, and this ghost story is on its way?
I?m glad this was just novella size. I?m not sure the author or me as the reader could sustain this little tale in longer form. It had an unraveling affect on Isabel and on me!
so much more than a story about a bored housewife who sees apparitions
This is a ghost story set in 1952 near an abondoned British air field. The heroine of the story is lonely and bored.
With the help of a greatcoat used to keep warm, a young wife is visited by the ghost of an airman from WW2.
