The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir is by R.A. Dick. This classic novella was the basis for the 1947 movie of the same title starring Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison - a must see classic movie. Mrs. Lucy Muir has been recently widowed and wants to escape the tyranny of her late-husband's family and live her own life. She takes her two children and rents Gull Cottage in a small seaside village. The house, however, is haunted by the ghost of its former owner, Captain Daniel Gregg. Gregg takes a liking to Lucy and decides to let her stay in his house. The novella follows her "relationship" with the Captain throughout the remainder of her life. Romantics will not be able to suppress tearing up at the end. A charming romantic fantasy and a Reader's Corner Highly Recommended Read.

Ratings: 9th grade - 10 out of 10.
