Winter Ghosts

A shorter Book by Kate Mosse!! (i.e teeny in comparison to Sepulchre and Labyrinth)

This book is a good read for a winter evening and I just didn’t want to put it down!!

This isn’t a scary `hide under the bedcovers’ sort of ghost story, so if you are hoping to be frightened on the run up to Halloween you will be disappointed.

It is a story about a man who struggles to come to terms with his brother death in WW1 and his guilt over not knowing how his brother died.   A change of scene and a trip through France is suggested.  While driving through the mountains he crashes his car after becoming lost in a blizzard and finds shelter in village where he meets a lovely young woman who tells him her terrible story.

If you really want to you can pick holes in the story, such as calling it predictable or the like, or you can curl up in front of the fire, or in bed and enjoy a good book that is in part ghost story/in part love story!!

Aside from all that Kate Mosse retains her fantastic descriptions of a the wintery French Countryside which are just a joy to read!!
